Cultivating gardeners. Growing Food. Nourishing Community.

Your dollars make a real difference.

When you support Denver Urban Gardens, you support preserving and maintaining green spaces, building skills, knowledge and resilience around growing food, and developing community-driven, local, organic food systems.

Give Today

A donation to DUG means more than just a gift of financial support – it’s a thank you of appreciation to your neighborhood. Your support of our work goes beyond just the garden bed; it’s an investment into the health and wellness of the community so that everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
