Community kids and students love working on the garden at Goldrick Elementary Community Garden. Over the summer, gardeners make sure hours are set aside for kids to come and work on the garden while they are not in school. When school is in session, a garden club is held every day after school. Garden leaders really enjoy this community garden and they encourage anyone who wants to join to reach out to DUG!
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.
