DUG knows that in order to make lasting change, community needs to drive it. That’s why every one of our urban gardens and farms has been started and led by local residents. We currently maintain over 180 gardens in six counties in the Denver Metro area.

DUG gardeners grow food, but more than that, they grow community. We put down deep roots, providing resources, training, and support needed to establish enduring gardens and farms that become valuable assets to neighborhoods. We do all of this with respect for all people and the environment.
