Heirloom Gardens was honored to receive a 2010 Mayor's Design Award. The ceremony was held at the fantastic Mercury Cafe, and the awards were given by Deputy Mayor Bill Vidal and Community Planning and Development Manager Peter Park. I was thrilled that several of the Heirloom Gardens farmers were present at the ceremony to celebrate. We're so happy that the work of Neighborhood Supported Agriculture is being recognized in this way by the city.

Little shout-out to the cheering farmers in the crowd.
What a lovely group of urban farmers! (from left: Lindsey, Shannon, Thecia, Courtney, Sundari, Denise, Deputy Mayor Vidal, Brenda)
Chad and Melody arrived a little late, but we had to be sure to get a photo of them with the award too!
The band getting ready to play. Doesn't the room look beautiful?
The food was fantastic, and most of it was locally sourced. My favorite was the Haystack Mountain goat cheeses!

On our way home... hooray for agriculture in Denver!
