Youth Education
Programs & Resources

 For more than twenty years Denver Urban Gardens has worked in partnership with Denver, Aurora, Jefferson County, Englewood, and Douglas County Public Schools to establish gardens and garden-focused programming at schools.

Of DUG’s 190+ community gardens, one-third are located on the grounds of schools. We believe the lessons offered in a garden are life-changing for children of all backgrounds. Through the wonders of a garden, students experience hands-on lessons in health, earth and life sciences, math, literacy, social science, and community building.
