DUG By The Numbers
Meet the DUG community
Our DUG community is pretty special. Our gardens are home to diverse people who all share a love for gardening– though what draws them to gardening is as diverse as they are.
Explore their stories in our Faces of DUG series.
Science confirms what gardeners already know–gardening is seriously good for you.
Since 2004, DUG and the Colorado School of Public Health have worked together through the Gardens for Growing Healthy Communities community-based research initiative to explore how gardens, as neighborhood places, support healthy living.
In the short film A Garden in Every Neighborhood, community gardeners, researchers, and public health professionals tell their stories about the positive impacts that community gardens have had on their lives and in their communities.
