Community Gardens

The Gardens on Spring Creek currently manages eight community gardens.  Six gardens are in public parks around Fort Collins: Buckingham, Edora, English Ranch, Rogers, Rolland Moore and Twin Silo Park.  One garden is located near the Senior Center, and one is at The Gardens on Spring Creek. The community gardening program has been operating since 2013, and we now have 158 plots.

All community gardeners are required to work four hours per plot, per season.  To report your hours, please contact Vicki Cotton at dmNvdHRvbkBmY2dvdi5jb20=.

At the Community Gardens, residents can grow their own fruits, vegetables, herbs and annual flowers in a plot approximately 150 square feet in size in a securely fenced area.  Amenities include a tool shed, picnic table, compost bins, hoses and watering wands and access to water. Gardeners are asked to provide their own tools, plants and other supplies.

Garden Plot Rental: To reserve a plot or to be placed on the wait list, please send your name, phone, email and top three garden choices to Vicki Cotton at dmNvdHRvbkBmY2dvdi5jb20=. If you need any more information, please contact us at (970) 416-2486.

Community Garden Outreach Program

Do you provide direct education to under-served populations, schools or would you like to grow food for the Food Bank?

The Community Garden Outreach Program reserves a plot at each of the Community Gardens we manage for groups that offer direct education programming to youth or under-served populations, schools, veterans, disabled populations or those growing food for donation to the Food Bank for Larimer County.  We have availability for this project-based work at several Community Gardens. Please review the policies here to learn more.
