Denver Urban Gardens - DUG


Established in 1985, Denver Urban Gardens (DUG) began working closely with Colorado State University Extension to develop community gardens. By 1993, DUG was the sole organization responsible for coordinating 21 active gardens in Denver. In 1997 we were asked to manage Denver's Free Seeds and Transplants Program, serving low-income residents. We believe our projects have initiated fundamental change in under-served neighborhoods. Disadvantaged youth and adults both discover they can be assets in their community. In turn, they gain respect for themselves and others.DUG provides neighborhoods with garden coordination, design and volunteer based construction. We negotiate land agreements and manage the construction, improvement and maintenance of neighborhood “owned” projects. To ensure long-term sustainability, we provide education programs to fully engage the “end users” at every stage of a project – from the initial vision to the ribbon cutting and beyond.
