2019 Gardener Information
FAQ's

What are the requirements to join Rose Roots Community Garden? 

Each 15' x 15' plot is $75 to rent annually. Each smaller raised ADA plot is $35 to rent annually. Each gardener must donate 12 hours of service time in community spaces. Each gardener can reserve their chosen plot in February by sending your request here. Water and fertilizer are provided. Gardeners can reside in any community as the Rose Roots Garden operates under Denver Urban Gardens (DUG) and is located in North West Arvada. Only organic fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides are permitted. 

What is the gardening timeline, planting and harvest guidelines?

You must plant your garden by June 1st, maintain it with care, and put it to bed by October 31st. Excess harvest can be stored in our new barn and garden volunteers take turns bringing excess harvest to the Arvada Food Bank. Rapidly spreading plants should be controlled in containers, and sunflowers should not detrimentally shade neighboring plots.

To what activities can garden members look forward?

Rose Roots Garden hosts group work days, potlucks, musical performances at the garden, and invites family and friends to join for special events like Farm to Table Harvest Dinners and Garden Hoedowns. Garden community space maintenance and composting are performed as a team.
