Beverly Grant

Mo' Betta Green
Beverly Grant is a proud Denver native and has been an entrepreneur for more than 25 years. She is dedicated to shaping food policy and broadening not only food access, but also food and nutrition literacy. Beverly founded the urban farmer’s market, Mo’ Betta Green Marketplace in June 2011 in Denver’s historic Five Points neighborhood on three principles: Food literacy, environmental stewardship and social responsibility. In October of 2015, Beverly founded Seeds of Power Unity Farm to provide a community learning platform for urban agriculture and design, and it is also a small production site for heirloom vegetables sourced directly to Mo’ Betta Green. Since it’s opening, Seeds of Power Unity Farm and Mo’ Betta Green Marketplace have improved community connectedness, increased awareness between food consumption and overall wellness, and helped to link disconnected populations to local food and pathways to active living.
