When you support Denver Urban Gardens, you help us reduce barriers to growing fresh, organic food–and so much more!

Your investment in a greener Metro Denver provides pathways for people of all ages to grow their organic gardening skills, regenerate urban green spaces, experience increased wellness, and build local food systems.

2022 has been a monumental year of growth  and we’re looking forward to digging in deeper next year. From planting new food forests throughout the city and providing critical resources to gardens through our Baseline Infrastructure Initiative to deepening gardening skills for people of all ages and providing opportunities for community and home gardeners to connect and learn from each other, we’ve got our hands in the soil and our eyes focused our vision of a sustainable urban future where people are deeply and directly connected to the earth, each other, and the food they eat.

We believe that by growing in community, we’re strengthening our ability to access healthy food, live in harmony with the earth and each other, and be more resilient.

Join our growing movement to spread seeds of hope across metro Denver. A better world is not only possible, we’re ensuring it is coming.

This giving season, we’re raising $50,000 with the support of community members who want to invest in the world they wish to see.
Together, we can cultivate hope for thriving, sustainable metro Denver!
