Community Coalition
for Barnum


The Community Coalition for Barnum (CCB) represents the Barnum and Barnum West neighborhoods in Denver, Colorado. The CCB is supported by volunteers within the community and consists of local neighbors and business owners. We are an RNO (Registered Neighborhood Organization) and a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The Barnum neighborhood is located between 6th Avenue North, Federal Boulevard East, Alameda Avenue South, and Sheridan Boulevard West. Originally founded in 1878, the Barnum and Barnum West community is home to more than 8,000 people. The CCB was started in 1974 and strives to advocate, provide information, and organize on behalf of the Barnum and Barnum West community.

Rainwater Harvesting Workshop Series

FREE Workshops for Barnum & Valverde! Paid for by Denver's Office of Climate Action Sustainability & Resilience

Join us for a 3-part workshop series to find out how you can harvest your home's rainwater to grow more flowers and to water your trees. You'll end up with a design plan for your home, that meets your home's needs. And then you'll schedule a time this summer, when we'll help you install your rainwater harvesting design. 

You are welcome to sign up for one, two, or all three workshops. We look forward to learning with you. 

Hot breakfast, coffee, and hot chocolate included. 


¡Todo esto es GRATIS! Pagado por la Oficina de Acción Climática, Sostenibilidad y Resiliencia de Denver, para ayudar a las comunidades que históricamente han recibido menos recursos a ser más resistentes al clima. Así que ¡aprovechémoslo! :)

Acompáñanos en esta serie de talleres de 3 partes para descubrir cómo puedes recoger el agua de lluvia de tu casa para cultivar más flores y regar tus árboles. Terminarás con un plan de diseño para tu casa, que satisfaga las necesidades de tu hogar. Y, a continuación, programará una fecha para este verano, cuando le ayudaremos a instalar su diseño de recogida de agua de lluvia.

Puedes apuntarte a uno, dos o los tres talleres. Estamos deseando aprender contigo. 

Desayuno caliente, café y chocolate caliente incluidos.

About Barnum & Barnum West

The Barnum neighborhood in West Denver is bounded by Sixth Ave. north, Federal Blvd. east, Alameda Blvd. south, and Perry Street west. Barnum West begins west of Perry and extends to Sheridan Blvd. The community was named after circus mogul P.T. Barnum, who purchased the land in 1878 and briefly owned it before selling it to his daughter, Helen Buchtel.
