Something fresh and green is sprouting up at the Colorado Convention Center. Convention Center event hospitality partner Centerplate has installed a large-scale, urban garden, the Blue Bear Farm. With over 5,000 square feet of growing space, the Blue Bear Farm will yield a bumper crop of farm-fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and beehives.
"At the Colorado Convention Center we've put major importance on delivering guests the freshest, local foods and flavors," says Centerplate's VP Laurence Rua. "Our chefs will make great use of the produce and honey from the Blue Bear Farm to represent the bounty of Colorado to our guests and fellow-citizens alike."
The Blue Bear Farm is part of Mayor Hancock's Denver Seeds Initiative. "Blue Bear Farm is a perfect example of how my Denver Seeds Initiative is growing a fresh food economy that will create jobs from plant to plate, " Mayor Hancock said.
Blue Bear Farm included 5,000 square feet of growing space that grows more than 1,800 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables. Check out more Blue Bear Farm Facts.
