Denver Urban Gardens and its staff and board honor the land on the unceded territories of the Tséstho’e (Cheyenne), Hinono’eino’ biito’owu’ (Arapaho), Núu-agha-tʉvʉ-pʉ̱ (Ute), and Očhéthi Šakówiŋ, as well as
48+ other tribes with ties to this region.
May our stewardship of this land support the collective work to dismantle ongoing legacies of oppression and inequities as well as recognize the current and future contributions of indigenous communities.
The DUG Network is comprised of 190+ community and school-based gardens across six counties in Metro Denver.
With the exception of a small number of gardens that serve specific communities, DUG community gardens are open to the public and managed by more than 500 volunteer Garden Leaders. The diversity of our gardens is reflected in their sizes, organizational structures, community cultures, and internal community policies. All of our gardens are further organized into one of seven Micro Networks, where we facilitate events and learning opportunities between community gardeners and local backyard gardeners.
