Delicious catering will be provided from some of our composting clients! From 6pm-7pm we will hold a panel discussion on holistic resource management. After the panel discussion we will host an Earth-Based Open Mic where folks such as yourselves have an opportunity to speak on the work they do in the world of sustainability, agriculture, clean energy, and conservation. This is a great opportunity to have a platform to share the work you do in and around Denver! Organizations and individuals will also have an opportunity to table at the event for some deeper outreach and conversation! CoCo will also be selling products from our Simple Swaps Shop at a 10% discount. Everyone who joins us will get entered into a raffle to win some sustainable products! We plan to cap the event at 100 attendees and everyone who carpools, takes the bus (bike, scooter, etc) can take home free compost samples!
