Keep Thornton Beautiful provides supply rebates for community gardens in Thornton as long as they are open to all Thornton residents and donate a substantial amount of the yield from the garden to area food pantries. Community Gardens receiving KTB funding are also expected to participate as members of the Adams Community Gardens CO-OP.
Adams Community Gardens CO-OP
The Adams Community Gardens CO-OP was formed in 2006 to promote the development of community gardens in Adams County. Each garden can send a representative to attend a monthly CO-OP meeting where common garden issues are discussed and members from the CSU Extension Master Gardener program are present to lend their expertise. CO-OP meetings are normally held on the second Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at 10190 Bannock St., Senior Hub Adult Day Service Suite 104, Northglenn, CO 80260 (Lower level of the Tri-County Health & Colorado Christian University building. Park in south lot and enter through south door.)
Gardeners of Adams County CO-OP gardens are expected to sign a standard waiver/release form before being allowed to participate in any of the community gardens or community garden events. If the gardener is a minor, their parent or guardian will sign the waiver/release form.
