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.
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.
