A big THANK YOU to our fellow Pea Patch gardeners! With your help, we
donated over 3100 pounds — that’s more than a ton and a half — of fresh
produce to our partner food banks in 2022. That makes Pea Patch Garden the
second largest Grow & Give site in the state! Let’s keep the momentum going
for 2023. Check back throughout the growing season for updates on donation

If you missed our class on growing
tomatoes, the CSU Extension website

The Arapahoe County Master Gardener program has had a donation garden at 2, 20×20 plots within the City of Littleton Community Gardens since 2011.  Our mission began and has remained to grow and donate fresh pesticide free produce to support our local community foodbanks.  We partner with our fellow Pea Patch gardeners and in 2021 we were able to donate a record 3020 pounds!  We were the biggest donator to “Grow and Give” in the state!

Donation pick ups on Tuesdays and Thursdays by 9:00 AM and Sundays by 1:00 PM.

What’s Bugging Your

Noticing “shothole” damage to
leaves in your garden? Are there
tiny leaping insects? If so, you’re
likely seeing flea beetles. Adult
flea beetles feed on leaves
making small holes resembling
damage from fine buckshot.
Young plants and seedlings are
most susceptible to flea beetle
damage. Serious infestations can
kill plants. This fact sheet has
great information on flea beetles
and guidance on how to control
