DUG Micro Networks

In order to better strengthen connections between metro Denver gardeners,
we have organized our community garden network into seven Micro Networks.

Micro Networks are designed not only to facilitate events for both DUG community gardeners and local backyard gardeners to meet but also to create inclusive garden spaces for learning with and from one another.

Micro Networks

Micro Networks are organized geographically but purposefully created without boundary lines. Home gardeners are encouraged to explore multiple Micro Network events that are located near them.

Maroon: Northside Nasturtiums

Orange: Midtown Mungbeans

Green: Southwest Sugar Snap Peas

Blue: Aurora

Coral: Southern Spicy Peppers

Purple: Central Cucumbers

Yellow: East Central Endives

2022 Micro Network Events

Join us throughout the gardening season as each of our seven Micro Networks hosts a hands-on
gardening workshop, a composting workshop, and a social event.
Locate your garden (whether a DUG or home garden!) on the map to find events near you! 

You can also meet our 2022 DUG Corps Members who will be supporting Micro Network Events across the city here.

Learn To Compost Workshop with a Master Composter

Healthy soils lead to healthy crops and healthy people. Home-made compost can help create soil communities that use less water, decrease the effects of climate change, and eliminate the usage of chemical fertilizers & pesticides.
