Welcome to the Arvada Gardeners website!

Growing with the Community

A community garden is a shared space gardened by a group of people. In Arvada, Colorado, the Arvada Gardeners manage two community gardens - the main Arvada Community Gardens with 140 plots on City land and one smaller site - at the Well House called the Delva Community Garden - on private property.  The Arvada Community Gardens are open dawn-to-dusk, daily, year round.

SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY   Our club participates in many activities within the community. From providing support for city-sponsored events to helping preserve the heritage of gardening in the area, our focus is to have fun while increasing our sense of community pride. The Arvada Harvest Festival and the Festival of Scarecrows are just two of our favorites.

SUPPORTING OUR LOCAL FOOD BANK   We support the Arvada Community Food Bank and Jeffco Action Center by allocating dedicated garden plots to these organizations. In 2014 we donated 1913 pounds of fresh produce, our best year ever. In 2015 we will encourage all members and renters to plant a little extra to help reach this goal. An on-site refrigerator provides safe and convenient storage of produce between deliveries.
