Students From Denver School Host Special Farmers Market

DENVER (CBS4) – Denver’s Baker neighborhood held a very special farmers market over the weekend.

Students from the Fairmount K-8 Academy spent Saturday morning selling produce they have been growing in their garden this summer.

The money raised will help keep the gardening program going all year long.

“It’s a great way to be a part of the community and to learn not only the planting and how to grow and life cycle of plants, but also cooking skills, healthy eating habits and nutrition for life,” teacher Audrey Beaugh said.

“This year we had a lot of stuff come in so that got us excited because we’ve never had this much stuff before,” 7th grade student Narcisse Vigil told CBS4.

When classes start in the fall the students plan to hold farmers markets every Friday after school.
