We support the Community Table and the Arvada Veggie Van by allocating dedicated garden plots to these organizations.  Gardeners also donate produce from their gardens.  In 2021 we donated 3290 pounds of fresh produce, our best year ever.  An on-site refrigerator provides safe and convenient storage of produce between deliveries.

SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY  

Our garden participates in many activities within the community. From providing support for city-sponsored events to helping preserve the heritage of gardening in the area, our focus is to have fun while increasing our sense of community pride. The Arvada Harvest Festival and the Festival of Scarecrows are just two of our favorites. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seed Library

 

Arvada Gardeners Seed Library

Arvada Gardeners maintains a seed library for members and the public. Members may access the library in the “Unblue” Shed at any time. Gardeners in Charge (GIC) are asked to pull the seed trays out of the shed to make them available to the public when the garden is open. 

Days and Hours:

· Sunday: 2 shifts: 8:00 am to 10:00 am and 10:00 am to 12:00pm

· Monday: 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm

· Wednesday: 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm

· Saturday: 8:00 am to 10:00 am

We recently received a large donation of seeds from a supplier who is going out of business. The seeds are in small purple and silver packets and have no planting instructions. Therefore, we are posting photos of instructions provided by the seed supplier. Unfortunately, there is not a one-to-one correspondence between the seed varieties we received and the instructions. If you don't find instructions for your seeds here, try a quick internet search.
