Dear Friend of EarthLinks,

We sincerely thank each and every person who joined us last Thursday at the Denver ChopHouse & Brewery for our annual fundraiser, Imagine 2013! From the ChopHouse's amazing food and beer, to the fun music provided by the Ken Walker Trio, to the stunning silent auction assembled by our incredible volunteers and board members, the event was a huge success. We told you we had some big news to share at Imagine, so read on for two important announcements:

Our Big News: A New Chapter for EarthLinks in Sun Valley

We wrote to you this Spring with news of our search for a new, permanent location for EarthLinks, due to increases in rent and the pressures of gentrification in our current neighborhood. After a lengthy search, countless visits to potential sites, and many ups and downs, we have great news to share: we have finally purchased a new home for EarthLinks!

New Property Concept DrawingLocated near the Decatur-Federal West Line light rail station in Denver's Sun Valley neighborhood, our new property sits on just over a half-acre of land with four small buildings in need of lots of love. We hope to bring new life to this space, provide food for our neighbors living in this food desert, and form community with those wishing to share our journey. Once the buildings are improved to safely house our program (we need bathrooms, roofs, water, a kitchen...) we will move and start again to build our gardens and grow our community. Our estimated move date is early Spring 2014.

We invite you to join with us as we enter into this next chapter in EarthLinks' history. We are humbled by the immense work ahead, but we hope you find this as exciting as we do! Please consider making a donation to help us begin our new chapter in Sun Valley by clicking here.
