Your kids will learn to grow their own food, a proven way to get them to eat their vegetables. And you will have a new way to connect with friends and neighbors while becoming part of our city’s movement for local, green and sustainable food.

Denver Urban Gardens, the organization which hosts this network of community gardens, makes it easy for you to find the closest or most convenient garden. You can search for locations and plot availability on their map. Most of the gardens are open to everyone, not just residents of Denver neighborhoods. You may even discover there’s a garden at your child’s school. Here are a few of the gardens found throughout Denver neighborhoods:
