If you are lucky enough to live in the Denver area or if you are planning a visit, there is an amazing thing happening on 3 acres located at Lawrence and 25th Streets in Denver’s downtown. There is a living, breathing learning experience that can teach you how to re-imagine our urban living environments. You will experience a hands-on demonstration of alternative building designs, urban gardening solutions, the newest water saving technologies and the list goes on.
Denver’s Sustainability Park is a collaboration of the Denver Housing Authority ( (DHA) and The Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES). Along with active community involvement, they have created an innovative approach to teaching our community how to lessen it’s carbon footprint and learn new sustainable ways to approach old problems.
The variety of sustainability solutions presented here is worth a number of visits just to make sure you are seeing it all. From a composting demonstration area to a Permaculture Garden the exhibitions are scattered throughout the three acre park. You can visit the urban garden or learn about options for efficient use of resources. One can imagine the fantastic resource for our schools to support their sustainability curriculums. The students are sure to be inspired and could even discover a new career choice after visiting the park.
As a local business in the Denver community, you can learn about energy efficient building materials and designs as well as effective resource management tools that can be part of your sustainable business vision. The latest cutting-edge technologies are here to be studied and then put to work in a real world environment. This community focus will hopefully result in healthy Colorado neighborhoods and a vibrant, growing “green” economy.
