Anythink garden project expands this spring

Plots will be available at Anythink's Commerce City, Perl Mack and Wright Farms locations.

Anythink Grows, the district’s community garden project, expands this spring with its latest addition of garden plots now available at Anythink Wright Farms. The new garden joins those at Anythink Commerce City and Anythink Perl Mack in helping to build community and sustainability around Adams County. 

Anythink and Denver Urban Gardens has partnered on this project to develop gardens here in our local community. Residents are invited to harvest vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers while connecting with neighbors. Interested gardeners are invited to sign up for plots to maintain throughout the growing season.

Wright Farms residents can interact with friends and neighbors and help prep the garden at Anythink Wright Farms during a community workday on Saturday, May 18. 

“This is one more way that Anythink libraries have established themselves as community gathering places,” says Anythink Public Services Director Ronnie Storey-Ewoldt, who is spearheading the garden project. “Not only do we want to promote ideas and creativity, but through these gardens our libraries will also promote healthy living and sustainability.”

To be on the waiting list for a plot at an Anythink garden, contact Deborah Hogue/Commerce City at dhogue@anythinklibraries.org; Annette Martinez/Perl Mack at amartinez@anythinklibraries.org; or Christine Gallegos/Wright Farms at cgallegos@anythinklibraries.org.

Anythink thanks partner Denver Urban Gardens for assistance in developing these community gardens.
