9 of our Lincoln sheep and their TUF 4-H kids participated in the Estes Park Wool Market and Fiber Festival from June 6 to 9.
The newest lambs were a big hit as well as winners. Mochi’s ewe lamb, who is 6 weeks old, was Reserve Champion for White Long Wools. Our new White Lincoln Ram won his class. One of the yearling ewe’s also won her class.
Overall we had 3 first place winners, 3 second place winners, and one 3 third place, as well as the Reserve Grand Champion.
Congratulations to all of our competitors, the 2 and the 4 legged ones.
We are offering different activities with our animals from 10:00am–12:00pm. These activities will be Saturdays in June and July 2019. Come interact with our goats, sheep, cattle, rabbits, chickens, and ducks. We will also offer activities in the greenhouse and daily horse turn out so you can come watch our four legged equine friends run around and play.
If you are looking for volunteer opportunities this summer for you, your family, and/ or your kids, join us on June 8, 2019, from 10am-12pm for a Volunteer Open House. Come meet some of our current volunteers and the TUF kids and help out with a few chores! Our open house is a great way to learn about our volunteer program, see what kind of work you might be doing, and decide if our program is right for you! Stop by anytime between 10am-12pm. We recommend bringing a pair of gloves and water.
The Urban Farm offers volunteer opportunities you cannot get anywhere else in Denver! In an intimate farm setting, you can learn all about our different programs from 4-H to equestrian to aquaponics. Our program is great for adults and kids ages 8 and up. Volunteering is an amazing way to invest in your community and everything you do here makes an impact on the lives of the people who visit and utilize our programming.
So come meet our animals and learn why our volunteer program is so rewarding and unique.
