Last Wednesday, January 25th, marked The Growing Project’s 2nd annual Volunteer Appreciation Party! Hosted by our good friends at Odell Brewery!
Volunteers spent the evening enjoying food, drinks and live music! The night also hosted a silent auction with proceeds benefiting our Giving Gardens of 2012.
This year, we teamed up with ‘Hunger free Colorado’ and asked our guests: What are you hungry for? This campaign allowed everyone to take part in the “hungry for change” campaign, and gave each participator a chance to write their request on their hunger for change plate. Hunger for change is Colorado’s leading anti-hunger organization leveraging the power of collaboration, system change, policy change and social change to end hunger in Colorado. You can, yourself get in on the action by signing your virtual plate here. Thank you to Ron James photography who captured photos of the plate dreams in action, as well as the bright smiling faces of the 2012 leadership and BOD team!

The giving, growing and sharing season of 2012 has started, and we here at The Growing Project, couldn’t be successful in the continuance of change if it weren’t for the great community builders we are so lucky to have as friends!
Thank you to everyone who has helped us along the way!
