Environment & Sustainability
 Kent Denver prides itself on leading the way in environmental sustainability. With plentiful learning opportunities across our beautiful 200-acre campus, Kent Denver teaches students the value in working toward a more sustainable future.

Care for the land. Promote sustainability

The Tiny Farm at Kent Denver is an outdoor educational teaching space offering hands-on learning opportunities and experiences in sustainability, land health, gardening, animal care, land stewardship and student wellness as it connects to the school community and the Summer at Kent Denver program.

The Tiny Farm is located on the western edge of campus and features a beautiful organic garden, blooming orchard, and, during the summer months, chickens, goats, rabbits and a pony or two! Originally created to host a day camp for Summer at Kent Denver, the Tiny Farm also inspires students and the greater community throughout the academic year.  


 


Tiny Farm & Sustainability

 

In the Summer of 2023—and with the help of many Kent Denver Upper School student interns—close to 600 kids ages 4-12 experienced various camps at the Tiny Farm. In the Fall of 2024, the farm will work to host elementary schools throughout the area to promote workshops in sustainable farming and land use. 

About Our Summer Program

A Community Effort

During the school year, students from Kent Denver’s Middle and Upper School academic classes—as well as independent study opportunities, advanced seminars in sustainability, service groups and parent volunteers—support and work on the Tiny Farm.

Kent Denver’s Upper School Sustainability service project also utilizes the Tiny Farm space as part of its efforts to increase awareness for environmental issues and to promote conservation throughout the school and our wider community.
