At the Residences at Creekside community garden, seasoned and beginner gardeners work together to cultivate beautiful and tasty vegetables. This garden is located at an Affordable Housing Complex for residents ages 62 and over. Each year, gardeners partner with the Rocky Mountain School of Design to put on two events, connecting students with the senior community. Every month, garden clubs are held to involve the community and take pride in the gardens. Most of the approximately 200 residents are retired and many are low-income, so all gardeners share their own proceeds with other residents of Creekside and Creekside West apartments.
