Since 2004, Denver Urban Gardens 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 A Garden in Every Neighborhood, community gardeners tell their stories about the positive impacts that community gardens have had on their lives and in their communities.
Denver Urban Gardens is a nonprofit organization that builds and supports community gardens throughout Metro Denver. In addition to more than 100 community gardens and school gardens, DUG operates an urban community farm, multiple education and outreach programs, and a free vegetable seeds and transplants program.
