HarvestSHARE is a community gathering where people bring excess harvest from their gardens to share with neighbors and HEAL the community by engaging Healthy Eating Active Living activities to generate Random Gestures of Compassion in Denver parks.
HarvestSHARE began in 2013 as a community centered festival celebrating Healthy Eating Active Living. This festival has always been for the people that live within 3 blocks of the 8 parks where HarvestSHARE has been held. (Schafer Park, Mestizo-Curtis Park, Russell Square Park, Dr. Alan Hale-Williams Park, Fredrick Douglas Park, Madame CJ Walker Park, George Morrison Sr. Park, St Charles Place Park and 2 Eastside Landmarks: Franks Food Mart and East Denver YMCA).
HarvestSHARE has greatly expanded its event footprint the last 3 years to include 6 parks,1 farm,1 school and 20 block street closures. The intended impact this year is to bring more people from the Greater Denver Metro to “social ease” after two years of pandemic-related separation and social division. HarvestSHARE is a collective impact festival with each park hosting a community centered organization led by people of color.
