Denver's Gardens & Urban Farms

To create a place to share pictures and stories about Denver's public and private gardens. There is a movement in Denver to grow more food locally and to create permacultures on private residences, so pictures of community gardens and farmers markets are encouraged! This community was created in April 2012 by a passionate home gardener.
