We are kicking off the Colorado Gives season in the spirit of Halloween. Here’s Harry Potter led by pal, Hermione Granger. Check out the rest of our equine friends in costume on our Facebook page!
Over the next several weeks, we’ll be highlighting our youth programs, animals in residence, amazing volunteers, and more. You won’t want to miss our next Colorado Gives email.
Working at the Farm is not only a rewarding learning experience but it can also be ground breaking. AmeriCorps NCCC and Leadership Corps are just two of the many organizations which choose to spend their time participating in Service Learning opportunities in our farm setting. Sometimes, they work in the chicken run building fences, other times they explore holes and learn about plumbing and irrigation.
Denver Diversion Program also visits the farm once each week. This group is made up of 14-18 year olds within the Denver Department of Corrections.They spend time at TUF completing farm chores, learning about animal care, and basic math in the form of construction trades curriculum
We rely on support from donors like you in order to provide opportunities such as these. Through your generous giving we’ll be able to host many more schools and groups who desire to donate their skill, talent and time to their community and to our shared cause.
