SAGE Community's mission is to cultivate peace and embody justice on the ground, in the ground, and underground! We joyfully embody radical compassion in creation through hands-on engagement of both soil and story. Everything and everyone belongs in the garden--a messy, beautiful, sacred place for all to gather and experience grace.
The community brings together a rich mix of progressive Christians, spiritual seekers, social justice activists, non-profit workers, gardeners, educators, immigrant and homeless folk. Our gatherings are bilingual (Spanish/English). Our garden engages a diversity of cultural traditions, land practices, and crops which powerfully expresses the diversity within our community.
The CoExist Garden is the center of our community. In our garden, we learn about each other, the land, gardening, food justice, and environmental integrity. We intentionally “practice” our values and discover sanctuary, play, meaningful work and deep peace. We vividly reflect and boldly live into the core values of the United Church of Christ: Whole Earth, Just Peace, Open & Affirming (LGBTQA inclusion), Accessible to All (A2A), Multi-cultural and Inclusive (in Word and Action).
SAGE serves those living and working in the Boulder, Denver, and Aurora metro area by providing nutritious, locally grown organic food. We offer all wanting to participate in a dynamic and inclusive intentional community a safe, beautiful, messy, and fun place to do so. We are a place to learn, teach, and work together.
We have cultivated rich relationships with a diversity of faith communities (inter-faith), gardening groups, food justice groups, horticultural therapists, agencies serving folks who are homeless/working poor, and educational institutions.
In 2013, the CoExist Garden grew over 3,000 pounds of food which directly benefited the wider community as well as many seeking services from multiple agencies across the metro area.
