ULI volunteer day and Greenleaf social event

Join your fellow Urban Land Institute (ULI) Young Leaders on Thursday, October 21 for a great community outreach project – help plant perennials at Denver’s new Sustainability Park. 2501 Arapahoe St. in the Curtis Park neighborhood.

DHA has offered ULI the opportunity to work alongside the Curtis Park community to transplant perennials from DHA's Westwood Homes rehab project. So bring your work clothes and get ready to get your hands dirty! 50 volunteers are needed - so bring a friend!

The event will kick off with a presentation where you will have the opportunity to learn about the work of the Denver Housing Authority (DHA), the Urban Farmers Collaborative and Colorado Renewable Energy Society. The volunteer event begins at 3:00 and work will continue until 5:00.

After the community service project is complete, attendees will walk to GreenSpaces for a complimentary social where donations may be accepted to benefit GreenLeaf. If you can't make it to the volunteer event feel free to stop by Greenspaces to meet local ecoprenuers, ULI young leaders and learn more about Denver's new Urban Sustainability Park.
