WHY: To support GreenLeaf’s year-round youth leadership development programs

The Farm-Raiser will feature a live performance by Pink Hawks, as well as an exciting silent auction, youth-led games and tours of GreenLeaf’s new farm at the Smiley Campus two blocks away, a delicious potluck-style dinner with food and drinks from local restaurants and breweries, and opportunities to purchase fresh produce from the farm and get involved with GreenLeaf’s award-winning programming.

The celebration will be focused on successes over the past year since GreenLeaf was forced to close our long-time farm home downtown and relocate operations. Thanks to a new partnership with Denver Public Schools, the GreenLeaf youth have built a brand new quarter-acre farm on the historic Smiley Campus in North Park Hill. GreenLeaf youth crew members work together to plan and manage the farm, including a weekly farm stand and small Community Supported Agriculture program, which help offset the cost of running the farm.

Debugging the Developer Shortage: Bringing together job seekers with dev teams

This event will connect Girl Develop It and Turing students and graduates, as well as other job seekers in the community, with companies in Denver/Boulder looking to fill development and engineering positions. 

Girl Develop It and Turing are empowering a diverse group of members with in-demand skill sets, but what do you do after you've learned all the skills you need? Local businesses that depend on engineering for innovation and growth are struggling to find qualified candidates for development positions – especially women. So, let's all hang out and meet each other. 

A new kind of career networking event:

There will be no HR recruiters collecting resumes, no one handing out pamphlets, and best of all - no reason to dress up in your interview best. You'll meet development team members from real companies in the Denver/Boulder area. You'll get to know the developers you'll be working alongside, before you even show them your resume. This is a night of networking with talented people free of the job fair intimidation. 

WHAT SHOULD YOU BRING? 
Bring yourself and a positive attitude! No need to bring your resume, since this is a casual networking event without all the pressure of a job fair. You should also come hungry - because there's free food!

FOOD AND DRINK
Food will be provided by Torchy’s Tacos and beer will be provided by Bull & Bush. There will also be a selection of non-alcoholic beverages.

Love Thy Nature Film Screening

RSVP for the Screening

About the Film:

We’ve lost touch with nature.This disconnect hurts our health, dulls our spirit, and threatens our future. Narrated by Liam Neeson, Love Thy Nature is a cinematic immersion into the beauty and intimacy of our relationship with the natural world. With mesmerizing artistry and fascinating details, the film explores how nature nourishes us.

Neeson is the voice of Homo Sapiens – our collective humankind – who, in the past few thousand years, has come to believe that we are separate from nature. This mind-set has caused us to disrupt billions of years of evolution, causing a mass extinction of species and threatening the survival of the human race.

Love Thy Nature shows that a new era of connectedness with the natural world is key to ensuring our species’ future. This era might just be dawning: A new science called biomimicry taps into nature’s four billion years of R&D for some of the most brilliant cutting edge inventions, pointing to a new highly advanced technological age: The Biological Revolution.

In the medical field, doctors are unveiling new findings on the role of nature to sustain and heal the human body. And experts have discovered that just spending time in nature promotes healing, emotional stability, connectedness, and even neurological health in children.

Through Sapiens’ journey, the film reveals how a relationship with nature ignites a sense of meaning and wonder so profound that it touches us at the very core of what it means to be human. Traversing the globe, Love Thy Nature shares the dazzling spectacles of our planet while revealing how a deeper connection with nature transforms us as people and communities. And that transformation inspires us not only to restore our ecosystems, but also our human family, and ourselves.

Know your Vibe, Attract Your Tribe

Know your Vibe, Attract Your Tribe

In this two hour hands-on workshop, you’ll be led through a process of uncovering your brand values, identifying your ideal client, and how you are uniquely positioned to serve them (i.e. your superpower). This workshop is designed to provide you with and authentic and unique brand strategy and a tonne of brand clarity.  Be ready to rock your socks off!

This is how we'll roll.

Part 1. Know your Vibe: we’ll identify your core brand values, what makes you unique and how you can build your brand and business authentically and with confidence. You will come out of this with a clear idea of your unique superpower and hone in on the one core element that really makes people buy from you (but businesses rarely communicate).

Part 2. Attract Your Tribe: we’ll dial right into who your ideal client/customer is, identifying their needs and how you are uniquely and best positioned to solve these for them. You’ll come out of this with a clear strategy of how to grow your business working with clients you love and who spread the love. Say goodbye to a scattergun approach to finding new clients.

Part 3. The Script: in this final session, we’ll bring together the work on the previous elements to create a one page brand bible that outlines your unique vibe, your ideal tribe and some word wizardry that helps you communicate this in a cohesive and confident way.

The Presenter

This session is being run by Tracey Gobey, Boss Lady and Creative Hustler at The Bootstrap Assembly. New to Denver and Green Spaces (from The Land Down Under), Tracey is a Brand and Squarespace Web Designer who works with creative entrepreneurs, start-ups and folks who are ready to take bold action towards making their mark on the world.

FASHION CAMP EARLY SUMMER EDITION

Fashion Denver presents fashion camp’s “SEAMLESS”
Saturday, May 28th 2016
10am-4pm
Green Spaces
2590 Walnut Street
Denver, CO 80205

For ages 5-15!

For our May installation of fashion camp, we’ll be taking our idea of upcycling and taking it to the next level by using sewing machines and making more of a finished product! Campers will learn basic sewing techniques and applying these techniques to their upcycled designs.

If the camper is too young or doesn’t have a sewing machine, we’ll still have a section to assemble the garments with no-sew techniques.

Before assemblage happens, we’ll have a photo-booth set up where they can take a photo of themselves to sketch their outfit onto their image.  And from sketch to creation, they will have a finished design that will be modeled by them on our red carpet.

Our campers will also learn how to make a basic handbag on the sewing machine (or with the glue gun / seam tape) to complete their outfits.

We’ll do a quick tutorial and reminder of how to pose and walk the runway with Dorian Phaero (we just love him), they’ll get their hair and makeup done again by fabulous stylists in our fashion community, and then show you their design on the runway!

If you have a sewing machine, that would be wonderful but if not, we will get one for your little fashionista!

A materials list will be sent out a few weeks prior to camp.
