Recently, middle-schoolers came by to help us get two important gardens started –the Kid’s Garden and our Herbal Garden. They also brought plants to include, birdhouses for our back fence, and homemade bird-feeders. What a wonderful contribution to our sustainable community! We are grateful for the support and effort.
Did you know that the Community Garden received visitors from 24/50 states in 2018? At least according to our first ever guestbook, we were able to capture the wonderful reflections of visitors from all over the United States. There may have even been more state visitors, not reflected there. We even had visitors from Germany and China! We love being a park-like attraction to Glenwood Springs visitors. Stop by sometime this summer and say hello –and sign the guest book too!
Compost Tea, that is.
Cynthia DeVore, one of our gardeners will be offering a special class, sharing her recipe and approach for fantastic COMPOST TEA. Please consider joining us on this Solstice evening.
FREE and open to the public.

Let’s celebrate SPRING and garden planting, by giving and receiving.
If you have extra seeds or plant starts you aren’t using, bring them by to share with others!
If you need something for your plot you don’t have yet, come by and see what you can find!
The Garden welcomes donations of the above from the community as well. We are a sharing community, Growing Glenwood Forward Together, after all.
If you, a friend or family member might have an interest in extending additional support to the Wulfsohn Community Garden, we are seeking the following to support our non-profit community:
Large Weed Buckets
$150 Sponsorship of a Donation Plot (6) – to help cover expenses for plot maintenance, growing produce and distributing donations to the community via Garfield County Senior Programs. Our volunteer on-site manager does all the work! In 2017, we donated 4200 lbs. of produce to local groups serving those in need.
Extra small garden tools – for community use especially on work days (trowels, spades, pruners, transplanters, weeders (esp weeders!)
Extra Garden Gloves – for community use on work days
We will amend this list on-going through the summer season.
Contact the Garden Board via our email@example.com email if you’d like to help.
Thank you for your continued support!
