Help us plan the next Community Garden!

Throughout the development of the 2017 Imagine Lakewood! arts, parks and recreation master plan, Lakewood residents spoke up and said that adding more community gardening opportunities is important.

In the spring and summer of 2018, the City engaged with residents about where there might be interest in developing a new community garden. A survey and public meetings yielded sufficient excitement and interest about a garden in southeast Lakewood and specifically Jefferson Green Park, 3333 S. Field Court. The community garden at Jefferson Green Park will open in 2019. Check the updates tab for the latest news and information. Thanks for

The City of Lakewood will fund the initial costs for the garden's infrastructure.

    Sign up now if you are interested in having a plot in the new garden. Most community gardens require an annual fee for participation and the cost depends on a number of factors. Fees typically range from $40-$60 per year per plot, plus $25 DUG membership. Scholarships are available based on need so that all who want to can participate.

    In order to be successful, the garden will need a small organizing committee of volunteers to make decisions about design and garden facilities. Please indicate if you are interested in joining the organizing committee which will work with DUG directly to make sure the new garden is successful.

    Join us for the initial public meeting and design workshop at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 13 at Bear Creek K-8 School, 9601 W. Dartmouth Place.

    Thank you!
