Community Gardens

Community gardens are a critical component of Aurora's sustainability vision. A community garden is a shared green space created and cultivated by volunteers to grow vegetables, fruits and herbs for personal or community use. Aurora has 23 public community gardens and residents can reserve a plot forDig in Aurora handbook front cover the season. Plot fees cost about $40 for a growing season (fees vary by location). Plots fill up quickly, so contact a garden near you to learn more and apply. 

Interested in starting a community garden in Aurora? The Dig in Aurora Community Garden Handbook is a resource for groups or individuals looking to build their own community garden. This handbook lays out the process, provides a single point of contact, and helps you understand city requirements. For more details, contact us at [email protected] or 720.859.4407.
