Pikes Peak Urban Gardens

What

Pikes Peak Urban Gardens works with neighborhoods, schools and places of worship to organize, plan, build and manage community gardens throughout the Pikes Peak region. We also offer a variety of gardening classes for all ages to empower our community members to grow healthy, organic produce while developing a deeper understanding of our food system. Our goal is to make gardening accessible to everyone.

Why

We build community by bringing people together through more than a dozen community garden projects throughout the region that have helped families grow their own local, fresh fruits and vegetables. In the past 10 seasons we’ve shared our gardening classes with over 8,000 eager gardeners, including elementary school gardening clubs and Wounded Warriors.

Needs

Funding for additional staff positions; additional board members; volunteers for garden projects, events and office support; gardening hand tools; garden hoses; wheelbarrows; and seeds.

Did You Know

Produce from your garden is higher in nutrients than that which travels many miles to the store. Our community gardens have enabled over 350 families grow their own.

“I can’t think of a better organization in our town that is committed to share the joy, education and opportunity for everyone and anyone to grow vegetables that contributes to themselves and their families.” — Mary Kirmer Neuenswander
