2014 Active Community Gardens



There are more than 135 active community gardens in the Denver Urban Gardens network. Gardens in the list below are sorted by city. With the exception of a small number of gardens that serve specific communities, DUG community gardens are open to the public. 

*Gardens marked with an asterisk are full for 2014. 

  • More on plot availability: Our volunteer garden leaders are currently determining which community gardeners are returning, and how many plots they will have available for the coming season. When they report to us that their community garden is full for the 2014 season, we will mark that garden with an asterisk. At this time, if a garden is not marked with an asterisk, it may mean that there are available plots, or it may mean that garden leaders are still checking in with gardeners from the previous year, and don't yet know if they will have available plots or not. 
  • Joining a community garden: To join a DUG community garden, call or email us with the name of the community garden you're interested in, and we will give you the contact information for the volunteer garden leader that handles membership at that particular garden. Depending on plot availability, the garden leader will either confirm that you have a plot, or add you to the waitlist if the garden is full for the season. In the off season and in early spring, the garden may still be waiting to hear from past gardeners and may not yet know if they will have available plots. In that case, they will add your name to the waitlist and contact you if a plot becomes available. Click here to learn more about joining a garden. 
  • School-Based Community Gardens: All school-based community gardens in Denver require background checks from gardeners. Click here for more information about Denver Public Schools' background check policy.
  • Finding a community garden: Prefer a map to a list? Our community garden map allows you to zoom into your neighborhood to find community gardens that are close to you.
