The joys of growing
Ken-Caryl Community Garden
Located adjacent to the Community Center, the Ken-Caryl Community Garden (KCCG) has become more than just a garden…it is a gathering place; a way for all generations to learn the joys of growing things; a legacy for the future.
Host to 38 plots, the KCCG is an inspired place for our community to grow fruit, vegetables and flowers. Plots are available annually for lease to all residents of Jefferson County.
Enclosed by an 8′ high decorative fence and complementary 2′ high rabbit fence, the garden discourages the entrance of our hungry and varied 4-legged friends. Community tools, hoses and supplies are kept in the locked shed on site. An L-shaped arbor with benches rest under two shady ponderosa pines offering a respite from the sun and a framed view to the hogbacks. Engraved bricks accent the gathering space and give members of the community a place to honor, recognize and remember loved ones and special occasions. Gardeners water their own plot by using the hose spigots located throughout the garden.
The Community Garden has gardeners of all ages, skill levels and interest areas. Register for a plot and you can create your own space to grow fruits, vegetables and flowers. Gardening is also a fantastic way to create community, meet new people and get some much-needed time spent in nature. The garden is open to the public any time gardeners are present. The garden gates are locked when gardeners are not present.
Please drop by or plan a visit to the garden.
