Harvest the Sun: An Evening at Jack's Solar Garden 
In September, we held our first Harvest the Sun farm to table event at Jack’s Solar Garden, 
where we showcased produce grown from underneath our solar panels and lamb raised on 
the farm in various small plates for our guests throughout the evening.
We’d like to thank our partners at Colorado State University, University of Arizona, 
the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Sprout City Farms for sharing their knowledge 
and the research they’ve been doing over the last three years!

to both the Dryland Agrivoltaics Research Site in Boulder and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden.
Our speakers included, Byron Kominek and Allison Jackson of the Colorado Agrivoltaic Learning Center; James McCall, Brittany Staie, Alexis Pascaris, Kai Lepley, Brian Mirletz and Jordan Macknick of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory; Liza McConnell of Sprout City Farms; Amy Marble of the University of Arizona; Anna Clare Monlezun of Graze LLC; Christopher Toy 
and Matthew Sturchio of Colorado State University; and Nick DiDomenico of the Dryland Agroecology Research.
We’d like to thank each of our speakers for sharing their knowledge and expertise with our attendees! 

Alliance for Collective Action Fundraiser at Jack's Solar Garden
Last month, we were part of The Alliance for Collective Action’s annual regenerative farm tour. Their members are invited to tour urban and rural farms to help build the regenerative agriculture network and awareness around regenerative agriculture practices and practitioners across Colorado. Their final tour was at Jack’s Solar Garden, where we hosted their fundraiser celebrating farmers and ranchers across the front range. 
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to host! It was truly an inspiring evening.
