Mission Statement

Denver Urban Gardens was established in 1985 to support Denver residents in creating sustainable, food-producing neighborhood community gardens.

Over the past 35 years, we've grown to become the largest urban network in the nation, supporting over 17,500 gardeners and just over forty thousand Coloradans across six counties annually. Together, we build community, knowledge, and resiliency around growing food.


Organization History

Denver Urban Gardens cultivates accessible, food-producing, enduring, community gardens and farms for individuals, organizations, schools, and neighborhoods seeking community-based food initiatives that foster a sense of place through:
• Sharing expertise
• Educating and training
• Partnering with communities to secure land, build, and organization, and
• Collaboration and connecting resources.
We do this with respect for all people and the environment.
