About Harvest Week 2016

Harvest Week is 5-day showcase of Denver food culture and the Colorado-grown produce that sustains our many acclaimed and independent local restaurants.  In 2008, Harvest Week was created by a group of restauranteurs wanting to collaborate and share their knowledge of local produce and great food in our city and state.  In order to do this, EatDenver and independent restaurants worked with farmers, producers, brewers and more to bring one-of-a-kind dining experience to Denver foodies.

In 2010, Harvest Week found the ideal venue in The GrowHaus, a nonprofit indoor farm operating in north Denver. The GrowHaus’ mission of creating a community-driven neighborhood-based food system aligned well with the events goals, and thus a long-term partnership was born! Today, Harvest Week is a joint fundraiser operated by EatDenver and The GrowHaus to raise funds for both organizations, as well as celebrate and support the integral role local food plays in Denver’s thriving dining scene.

About The GrowHaus

The GrowHaus is an indoor farm and urban agriculture non-profit operating in Denver's Elyria-Swansea neighborhood, seeking to create a community-driven neighborhood-based food system by serving as a hub for urban agriculture, education, and business development.

Originally a 20,000 square foot processing facility for cut flowers, it has been renovated and now houses hydroponic and aquaponic farms, a daily market, community space, and a classroom used for educational programming.  The space accurately reflects the three program areas in which they operate to support their vision: food production, food distribution, and food education.

In their effort to create a more resilient and equitable food system here in Denver, The GrowHaus is a strong proponent of a vibrant local dining scene, and is dedicated to partnering with many organizations such as EatDenver and its restaurant members, who support our local food economy.  The GrowHaus is thrilled to officially partner with EatDenver to produce and host the eighth-annual Harvest Week, and build excitement for local food and its role in strengthening Denver’s thriving food scene on a national scale.
