Rose Roots Community Garden is a local Community Garden that brings together community in North West Arvada, Colorado. We’ve been working with the City of Arvada and Denver Urban Gardens since 2012 to grow local and healthy produce in an open space that enables residents to be involved in planting, growing, and maintaining a garden.
Whether you're a seasoned gardener or a Green hand, we encourage you to join us and contribute towards making a difference. Meet our Community.
Note: We offer Learning and Helping Scholarships Here. In doing so, we pledge that any community member experiencing financial hardship or other extenuating circumstances is always welcome to join our community by emailing us Here to get a plot (subject to availability).
How Rose Roots Gives Back to Community
Rose Roots Garden gives back to community through neighborhood improvement projects, food donations and offering community resources like workshops and community events. Here are some special community moments.
Rose Roots Garden partners with the City of Arvada and Denver Urban Gardens. The initial garden development was funded through a Jeffco Open Space grant and the City continues to support the garden with Neighborhood Improvement grants.
