I headed up to Harvest Farm this week to write a story and had the best time walking around, meeting the new animals and asking the staff a million questions. It baffles me that after a year and a half of working here, I can still learn something new about Denver Rescue Mission every single day.

The history, the programs, the day-to-day operations…this place is continually surprising and impressing me! I got to chat with Kelly Ballantyne, the Farm’s Garden Supervisor, for just a little bit. Stopping to pull weeds as we walked and talked, he showed me all the plants that are starting to come up.
