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).

Mo is a garlic expert!

We have plots ranging between 250-700 square feet available. Most plots have their 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 $100 for plots above 400 square feet and $70 for plots under 400 square feet. Two hours of individual community service and two hours of service in a community workday 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.
