Growing Colorado Kids works with refugee youth to cultivate leadership and teamwork through organic gardening and nutritional cooking for the benefit of all. We work to achieve this mission through gardening, cooking classes, service and community building.
Growing Colorado Kids was founded in 2008 by Chris and Denise Lines. They founded the organization based on the needs of the youth Denise worked with at a previous job. The youth had a need for food, and healthy food. Denise wanted to not only meet this need but to do so in a meaningful way - a way that would be about more than food. In 2010 Growing Colorado Kids became a project of the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center, eligible to receive nonprofit contributions under CNDC's 501(c)(3) status.
Since its inception the organization has served youth from Burma, Rwanda and Somalia, produced 3600 pounds of food, and shared around 2,000 meals. We continue to grow as a community. We invite you to grow with us!
