Panorama of  community gardens

Welcome to the Boulder County Extension Community Garden!

We strive to create an atmosphere of positive collaboration for our gardeners by sharing ideas, strategies, newsletters and CSU Extension information. Our gardeners enjoy the Camaraderie of a diverse group with a wide range of gardening knowledge and skills. We also appreciate the sharing of plants, flowers and veggies with each other and local food banks!

Community Garden Garlic scapes
Allison’s garlic scapes

The garden was established more than 25 years ago. It consists of several dozen plots that are rented by community members in need of a place to grow. We encourage edible and ornamental gardens. CSU Extension has research trials on several crops for public educational use within the garden as well.

Mo is a garlic expert!

We have 600 and 300 square foot plots available. Most plots have its own water spigot for your convenience. When possible, compost is delivered based on community request. Some tools are shared by our members. In addition to a one time deposit of $50, the annual fee per plot is $85/55. Two hours of community service per plot is also required. Project List Please be aware that there is typically a wait list for plots, but we often have openings.

We endorse the use of non-chemical means for weed and pest control, but this is not an organic garden.
