A brief description of the institution’s community garden:

In May 30, 2009 a ribbon-cutting ceremony marked the end of an effort by volunteers from DU, the surrounding neighborhoods and Denver Urban Gardens to transform the land—purchased by the University in 2005—into a workable garden. Located across from Centennial Halls at 1819 S. High St., the DU Bridge garden is a place for students, staff, and neighbors to come together to grow fruits vegetables, and community.

The University of Denver Bridge Community Garden moved to a new home in 2015 on campus, on the corner of Race Street and Iliff Avenue. The goal for the new garden is to become an experiential learning where faculty, staff and students can come to engage with one another and with DU neighbors.

In addition to 38 plots for DU community members and neighbors, the garden serves as a bee host site through the Urban Pollination Project.
