Who can participate?
This is an income-qualifying program for individuals and families and home and community gardeners alike. Those who live in Denver Metro and have a household income of less than 80% of median income qualify. Income limits are listed below. We are able to accept one application per household. The program fee for individuals and families is $5, and the fee can be waived upon request.
*New in 2020* If your income is above the listed limits, we invite you to participate in the program at the Grow a Garden Member Level of $60 (a $240 value). When you become a member, you become a part of the dynamic community that is helping to transform food access in the Denver Metro Area.
2020 benefits include:
- Up to 10 seed packets
- Up to five two-packs of seedlings
- Full access to our Urban Roots Garden Education workshops throughout the year (excluding materials)
- Early Access to our Spring Plant Sale Preview on Thursday, May 7th, 2020
Group applications are for those applying on behalf of groups such as schools, classrooms, educational, human service or faith-based organizations and community garden donation plots. The intention of group applications is to serve groups that would not otherwise have access to seeds, seedlings and education needed for their gardening projects. Groups in the Denver Metro area are eligible to apply. The program fee for groups is $15.
