There are several community gardens in Lakewood. Most gardens are managed through a partnership with Denver Urban Gardens (DUG), an organization that helps and enables local residents to join together and garden in a communal setting. Three gardens are located on Lakewood park property (Ute Trail Community Garden, Gray Street Community Garden and Jefferson Green Park Community Garden) while many more are located on school and assisted living properties.
If you are interested in joining a community garden in Lakewood, please contact DUG at 303-292-9900 or firstname.lastname@example.org and staff will connect you to the garden leader or add you to the wait list. For the most up to date list of community gardens, visit DUG's website and click on "Lakewood."
