2021 Grow a Garden applications open January 1st!

By December 15, 2020December 22nd, 2020News

For the last 23 years, we’ve been fighting food insecurity and building resiliency in Metro Denver through our annual Grow a Garden program, which connects individuals, families and community groups to free and low-cost seeds, seedlings, and educational support to grow their own food either at home or in a community garden. We’ve served tens of thousands of people over the decades, and each year we hear firsthand how transformational the program is, especially for first-time gardeners.

2020 was our largest program yet, and we’re gearing up for another unprecedented year. In order to make the program ever more accessible, we’re excited to be offering a Pay-What-You-Can model in 2021. Now anyone, regardless of income, can benefit from our organically grown and non-GMO seeds and seedlings, and expert garden support.

We’re committed to making this program accessible to all. Our suggested $60 program fee is offered as a a guide to help you set your own price. We’re trusting you to let us know what’s right for you–more or less. 

We also listened to your feedback and are transitioning our in-person workshops to online support through our virtual network offered in easily digestible, bite-sized bits of wisdom. 

Our online application is open all of January and allows you to select a convenient pickup location for your seeds and seedlings from one of our 16 partner organizations. Learn more and apply here between January 1st – January 31st. 2021.
