About Majestic View Farm

The site of the Born Botanical Permaculture Action Day on June 8th is Majestic View Farm, a 2-acre plot adjacent to the Majestic View Nature Center in Arvada, Colorado. In January of 2019, the farm was awarded to Frontline Farming by the Majestic View Nature Center and the City of Arvada. Today, Majestic View Farm hosts monthly volunteer events and an educational class series. It houses beehives and a chicken coop, and its growth is helping to provide the surrounding Arvada community with nutritious, organically grown vegetables and herbs.

Join us at Majestic View Farm on June 8th for the Born Botanical Action Dayand help us serve the greater urban area by uplifting this keystone community garden.
