Rose Roots Community Garden, Part of Arvada's Public City Parks, is an organic garden run entirely by volunteers. We have 10 Service Teams you can learn more about Here.

Rose Roots Garden was founded in 2012 by local community members who advocated to develop a park, CSA and community garden in the 15 acre space called the Hills at Standley Lake Park. With a $90,000 Jeffco grant, the city and local community organizers built the initial garden infrastructure together.

What is cool about gardening with three generations in our family is getting to spend relaxed time outdoors with my family. It is so gratifying to see something flourish when you contribute.
