Denver Urban Gardens

Mission: Denver Urban Gardens comes alongside residents, and together, we grow community – one urban garden at a time. DUG offers neighborhoods the essential resources for community gardens, including ongoing technical expertise with:

  1. securing sustainable land for gardens;
  2. designing and building gardens;
  3. supporting garden organization, leadership, outreach and maintenance;
  4. utilizing gardens as extraordinary places for learning and healthy living; and
  5. linking gardens with related local food system projects and policy.

We currently operate over 135 community gardens throughout Metro Denver, including more than 40 school-based community gardens. In addition to building and supporting community gardens, we operate DeLaney Community Farm, the Master Composter Training Program, the Master Community Gardener Training Program, the Free Seeds and Transplants Program, and provide extensive opportunities for youth education in nutrition and gardening.
