Every Child in a Garden: A Virtual Dinner Party

When: April 22, 2021, 6:30 pm

What: A celebration of our 15th Anniversary and Earth Day 2021 focusing on Equity in Health, Education and Environment. Attendees will feel like they are sitting around the dinner table with their smartest, most interesting friends.

The program will include a range of fun and engaging elements including:

  • Where are they now? Messages from our founders, Bryce Brown and Deborah Foy
  • Garden Trivia Game with a chance to win cool stuff
  • Options to purchase dinner specials from River & Woods (Boulder) and The Post Brewing Co. (Lafayette)
  • An online auction of 10 Things to Get you Out of the House
  • Dinner table conversation with community leaders on the topic of equity in health, education and environment
    • Moderator: Marta Loachamin, Boulder County Commissioner
    • Elizabeth Crowe, Administrator of the City of Boulder’s Health Equity Fund
    • Karen Bailey, Professor of Environmental Studies at CU Boulder
    • Sam Messier, Superintendent of Instruction and Equity at Boulder Valley School District

Who: Parents, teachers, community leaders and anyone interested in equity, health, education and/or environment. Attendees will be engaged, educated, inspired and motivated to get involved in their communities.

Where: This will be a professionally-produced, virtual event with options to purchase dinner specials, access virtual swag bags, and receive IRL gift bags with products from local businesses.

Why: Because kids have been cooped up for too long! Every child deserves to spend time in a garden, now more than ever. But, it takes more than providing a thriving garden, which we do in spades. Teachers need additional support and training to use school gardens for instruction. Your contributions will allow us to provide gardens and additional training and support for teachers.

Event sponsorship: We are currently recruiting event sponsors to support this event. You will benefit from event marketing and contributing content to the program. Plus, it’ll be fun and you’ll feel great about your participation! Let’s get creative! You can offer swag, sponsor a trivia game, host a contest– the sky is the limit!
