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!
The Boulder County Extension Community Garden was established by Barbara Hyde in the 1980’s. 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. Our community areas grow numerous crops including hops, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, grapes, goji berries, and rhubarb (click on hyperlinks to learn more about these types of crops).
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 a wait list for plots.
We endorse the use of non-chemical means for weed and pest control, but this is not an organic garden.
