Nurturing Community Through a Green Gathering Space

Denver, CO

There is a place of hope in the heart of Denver, Colorado, directly addressing the needs of community members experiencing the consequences of poverty and homelessness. The Gathering Place is a remarkable organization that focuses on providing essential resources and services to women and children in need. Among its innovative approaches to fostering community well-being and self-reliance, is its rooftop garden, an inspiring testament to sustainable urban agriculture.

In 2007, Greenscreen trellises were installed along sections of the rooftop perimeter, mounted between posts using clips that provide a concealed attachment and support flourishing vegetation, including eggplants, string beans, and plump tomatoes. The rooftop garden offers more than delicious seasonal veggies; it is a healing space and an opportunity to learn sustainable practices for the community it serves.

The rooftop garden is an excellent example of how urban spaces can be transformed to serve the greater good, by demonstrating how sustainability and compassion can make a profound difference in people's lives.
