Liz Whitman, Lead Grower
While much of our work is done in the company of our volunteers, they are led by our resident Lead Grower expert. We expect you will see her around the gardens, but please meet Liz Whitman in her own words:
I was born and raised in Denver. I have found lots of joy in my life connecting to various communities through growing food and providing spaces to gather. I have spent time traveling throughout Europe working at several different small-scale organic farms. From my travels, I experienced first hand how enriching it is to have a direct hand in producing food that will be shared with the community around you. In Colorado, I have connected to communities through working in the coffee industry where I focused on not only providing good coffee, but a valuable community space for people to gather. I am excited to continue my journey in growing food and building community in my hometown with The Table.
Free veggies?!? What’s the catch?
Nothing! They really are free and it really is fun. We aim to share tangible grace in the form of fresh produce with our community. The Veggie Bike helps us do that. How does it work? You bring a bag. You fill it. You smile. You share. #SowItForward. The Table’s Veggie Bike made its maiden voyage in June, 2015, transporting the freshest, most local produce to neighborhood hangouts to give away vegetables from The Table gardens.
Now in its sixth season, the Veggie Bike has drawn a following and as we set up at the Table Public House, Platt Park, Corvus Coffee or Grandma’s House Brewing, our neighbors begin migrating toward the bike with their bags at the ready. We want to bring the food to the people! Follow The Table on Facebook (The Table), Instagram (@denverthetable), and Twitter (@denverthetable) to see where the Veggie Bike will be next!
