Gardens in DPS
We are committed to providing opportunities for students and faculty alike to engage and learn from nature. The Office of Sustainability's Garden and Greenhouse Program oversees everything garden related in DPS. We support over 110 garden and outdoor classroom sites across the district. While the Office of Sustainability does not provide funding for school gardens, we happily share our expertise, connections with community partners, curriculum and opportunites for grants and fund raising. We support passionate garden and sustainability champions!
The Denver Public School Garden Coalition is an alliance of the Department of Sustainability and local community partners and resources. The Garden Coalition Manual provides guidelines and resources for your school when determining your garden site, building the garden and seeing it into the future. The manual also outlines special opportunites such as Garden to Cafeteria and Youth Farm Stand programs.
Please contact us with any questions or celebrations related to your school garden.
