is a new social enterprise part of Re:Vision's Re:Farm program.
Through FEED we increase access and affordability of fresh, healthy and culturally appropriate food in low-income neighborhoods by cultivating community-owned food systems.
FEED Westwood provides training and employment for neighborhood residents to run a 1/2-acre urban farm in Westwood including our new shipping container hydroponic farm called Caja Verde.
Half of the produce grown on our urban farm is sold at market rate to mission-minded farm-to-table restaurants (see restaurants below). The remaining half of the produce grown through FEED Westwood is distributed to community residents through the Westwood Food Cooperative, low-cost and/or free food boxes and free donations to Denver Food Rescue and SAME Cafe.
Cropbox - Caja Verde
Meet the latest addition to the Re:Vision urban farm – Caja Verde. Our 320 square foot up-cycled shipping container adds a full acre of year-round hydroponic growing capacity. This social enterprise will hire community members to grow high quality leafy greens and herbs to supplement our other seasonal farm produce. Proceeds from these sales will directly support Re:Vision’s mission.
Urban Farm - Nuestra granja
In 2016, Re:Vision launched a 2/3 acre urban farm on the site of RISE Westwood. Food is sold at an on-site mercado run by the Westwood Food Co-op, as well as distributed to a variety of local restaurants. The bountiful harvest is also turned into value-added shelf stable products by our skilled and dedicated Promotora team. We love giving tours, so drop us a line!
