Celebrating our common humanity

by growing food.


Let’s grow together!

Denver Urban Gardens builds connection, skills, and resiliency around growing food.


Over the last thirty-five years, DUG has grown to include both community and school-based gardens across six counties in the Denver Metro Area. We also offer horticultural and leadership training, youth education, and food access programs that provide free and low-cost access to seeds, seedlings and education around growing food.
