No Garden Plot, No Problem!


Not able to garden on your own terra firma?  A community garden is the place for you.  Not only will you get your own garden plot, but you’ll meet other super nice and helpful gardeners. It's a great place to collectively get your hands dirty!

Most community garden organizations provide garden leader volunteers to help with sign ups, maintenance guidelines, workshops and more. Prices and procedures for yearly plot rentals vary (under/to over $35) and there may be wait lists so sign up now.
Many gardens have handicap accessible planting beds. Other gardens support local food banks or Plant a Row for the Hungry. Check to see if they offer assistance to develop community gardens in your area or garden programs for children.
Below are some organizations along the Front Range and contact information for additional information and locations.  Regrets if I left out your favorite community garden.
