The CSU Master Gardener demonstration vegetable garden is located on the northeast corner of the Clayton Elementary School campus at the intersection of Tufts and Delaware. The Clayton Community Garden has 7 plots for elementary grades and 15 community plots. The Colorado Master Gardeners have 1 plot. Herbs, blackberries, fruit trees and pollinator plants are grown in the shared common area of the garden.

This is a unique community garden. It’s part of a partnership between Clayton Elementary School, Colorado Master Gardeners, and Denver Urban Gardens. The partnership aims to use the Colorado Master Gardeners’ plot to show and share gardening tips and techniques, and for Clayton students to learn about gardening and share their excitement and knowledge with their families and caregivers.

In May, Clayton Elementary School along with the partners will host an outdoor Garden Workday for students and community members.

In June, Colorado Master Gardeners work in the demonstration garden on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday mornings from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. On the second Saturday of each month, they give 30-minute educational presentations. These presentations are open to the public and cover a range of topics, such as container gardening, soil and compost, planting, and watering. Stop by to learn and grow with us!

This demonstration garden contributes to the CSU “Grow and Give” program, a larger hunger relief effort in Colorado. Once harvesting starts, students can take produce from the school plots home to share, while any excess may be donated to Integrated Family Community Services. Produce from the Colorado Master Gardeners’ plot is donated to Integrated Family Community Services.
