Lost Greens Farm is a pesticide-free urban farm project located in Denver, Colorado. Our focus is farming using regenerative and density forward methods to create thriving agricultural micro-farms in urban spaces. We are proudly transgender-owned and operated — merely by existing openly as such, our farm takes a stand against discriminatory political legislation and attempted erasure of trans peoples’ right to self-determination and open existence. Lost Greens currently has .10 of an acre in production comprised of two plots, 25 CSA member shares, seven work-trade CSA member shares, workshop offerings, and a Sunday farmer’s market booth at the Highlands Farmers Marker for 2023. This funding will be used primarily for needed investments in infrastructure to continue growing our farming operation, specifically to expand our CSA program, acquire and convert additional urban plots to growing spaces, and potentially budget to hire staff. Planned infrastructure investments include a post-harvest wash station, renovated cool-shed for harvest storage (including mid-temperature storage for tomatoes and other cold-sensitive crops), farming and harvesting tools, season extension equipment (such as caterpillar tunnels or low tunnels) irrigation equipment for expanded growing spaces, automation tools (such as irrigation timers), and market booth upgrades (tents, tables, displays, and packaging).
