Community Garden at Congress Park

Community Garden at Congress Park

More than 140 neighborhood gardeners grow produce for their families and community members at the Community Garden.

The community garden program started in 1977 to provide Congress and Cheesman Park neighbors the opportunity to grow food and become more engaged with the Gardens. The garden moved to Congress Park in 2010 where 89 plots are maintained by families and community members. Excess produce not consumed by members is donated to food banks and other distribution programs. The garden is a Certified Wildlife Habitat® through the National Wildlife Federation and serves as an urban oasis for hummingbirds, songbirds and the occasional fox.

  • Participation in the community garden is only open to members of Denver Botanic Gardens
  • Plots are currently being filled for the 2023 season
