Celebration Community Gardens
Celebration Community Urban Gardens has been transformed from a 15,000-sq. ft. invasive weeds lot into a food wonderland in the Virginia Village neighborhood of Denver. Similarly, to Sister Gardens at Aria, Celebration Community Urban Garden also hosts volunteer events, low/no-cost classes, and our twice weekly ‘pay what you can’ farm stands. Celebration Garden strives to bring people together through food by encouraging cross cultural connections, children and youth programming, nutritious and abundant produce and an accessible garden space. All garden beds at this site are in raised beds which makes it easier for more people to navigate and work in. This site hosts a weekly volunteer day on Wednesdays, a monthly Saturday volunteer and education day. The Saturday farm-stand is intended to create a liveliness in the garden and we welcome people to hang out and offer garden-based children’s programming. During the 2018 season Celebration Garden’s produced over 3,200 lbs.sold to over 400 customers and hosted four monthly World Heritage Potlucks where more than 120 people participated.
