Naturally Boulder’s mission to nurture conscious growth, leadership and innovation in the Colorado natural products community doesn’t end with our own programming; we know that creating a healthier, more conscious world is about much more than achieving business success. That’s why we plug in our community and resources to support partners who’re paving the way.
As Denver’s frontline hunger-prevention organization, Metro Caring works with our community to meet people’s immediate need for nutritious food while building a movement to sustainably address the root causes of hunger. Using a multifaceted approach, Metro Caring is innovative in how they solve problems related to hunger, with programming offered in healthy food access, nutrition and cooking, ID and tax assistance and public benefits enrollment.

25th during Hunger Action Month, Cornucopia celebrates the thousands of individuals and families working towards improving their well-being and reaching their highest potential as a community. The event also showcases the role of Metro Caring’s sponsors in the food justice movement to encourage other local leaders to join the mission. Click here to buy tickets for Cornucopia 2019!
Earth Day Partner – One Tree Planted
One Tree Planted is a non-profit focused on global reforestation. 80,000 acres of forest disappear from the Earth every day, so it’s essential to replant trees to regulate atmospheric gases, protect against desertification, store carbon, and to provide habitat for animals in the ecosystem.
Naturally Boulder and One Tree Planted team up on Earth Day to rehabilitate Boulder’s Fourmile Canyon, which is still recovering from the damage of serious wildfires in 2010. In 2019, over 400 volunteers planted 5,000 native trees to restore our home, before celebrating the day with some post-planting brews at Rayback Collective!
