Just before the start of summer this year, a new community garden opened in Denver’s Sloan’s Lake community, and the ArcWest team was quick to get involved. We believe in participating in the communities where we live and work and became the proud caretakers of 7 of the 50 garden plots available to residents and businesses in the community.
ArcWest team members, Betsy Lawton, ShirleeJae Illsley, and Todd Heirls, are the gardeners extraordinaire and take care of ArcWest’s plots. However, the whole office and their families and friends get to enjoy the bountiful produce – especially Todd’s Tremendous Tomatoes!
The community garden is part of the overall SLOANS development project, bounded by Stuart St., 17thAve, Perry St., and West Colfax. SLOANS is a new, 7.5-block, mixed-use community featuring condominiums, townhomes and apartments, expansive streetscapes, a dedicated retail street, restaurants, coffee and retail shops, a movie theater, community gardens, and a public plaza. ArcWest moved into one of the new buildings in January 2018.
The ArcWest team is thoroughly enjoying our new Sloan’s Lake office and we’re proud to be involved in the local community in a variety of ways.
