Rose Roots is the community garden and orchard part of this project, operating under Denver Urban Gardens, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, and Star Acre Farms is the CSA, profit-based farm who will be sharing the land. The project is located in Northwest Arvada and is being called a “Flagship” Community Agriculture Project for the City of Arvada, Jefferson County. It includes 8 acres of Open Space land that was previously slated for native grass. The master plan for the project is 2 acres of Community Garden + 1 Acre of Community Orchards + 5 acres of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). The project is located in The Hills at Standley Lake Park near 84th & Alkire Street.
To create a beautiful, organic community garden, community orchard, and farm in a collaborative environment that restores the bond between people, food and nature. We will work with each other and the land with integrity, courage and artistic thinking to create a better local-food system and a fertile, abundant world for the children who follow.
Everyone participating in and benefitting from an equitable and ecologically sound food system, compassionate communities and rich experiences with nature.
