This year together we will build raised garden beds that will be donated to the Catamount Institute. Your hard work will pay it forward to help their organization serve the needs of our community.
Please Note. You will not be able to take the garden bed home with you.
AGC Colorado recently cited that the Colorado construction workforce needs to add 45,000 more workers by 2027. Women make up 47% of the total U.S. workforce, but only account for 10.9% of the construction workforce. It is critical that we change these numbers and we plan to do so by inspiring and informing others about the need to recruit and retain women in the industry. We challenge you to help us reach our need of 45,000 workers by promoting careers in construction to the women you know!
