If you're a new or experienced gardener, the Neighborhood Resource Office is looking for you... in the best way.

They want you to adopt a plot in a community garden in Greeley.

If you don't have space of your own to grow food and flowers, community garden are the best option.

There are ten community gardens in Greeley, each one managed by a different entity, but the great news is that they're all accepting applications.

Usually, the only cost is a small fee to help cover the cost of water.

“The big benefit of the gardens is to grow your own food,” said Deb DeBoutez, Neighborhood Resource Specialist with the city of Greeley.  “Participation in this project is fun and also fosters a sense of community between gardeners.”

They are reserved on a first come, first served basis. Contact Deb DeBoutez for more information at 970-336-4167 or deborah.deboutez@greeleygov.com.
