Rose Roots Community Garden is committed to creating roots and is focused on sustainability, education outreach, and community. Events such as A Day in the Dirt and potlucks help to foster this sense of community among this group of compassionate gardeners, skilled volunteers, and local farmers. Rose Roots Community Garden is also dedicated to finding its place in the local community and do so by promoting and supporting projects such as Garden to Cafeteria and Plant a Row for the Hungry, a program that facilitates the donation of extra produce to local food banks. For those wanting to know more about Rose Roots Community Garden, they run a fantastic website with more information.
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.
