The City of Wheat Ridge partnered with Resource Central again in 2022 to offer the Garden in a Box program at discounted prices. Pre-designed garden kits contain plants that are tailored to Colorado soil, and the simple plant-by-number maps take the guesswork out of buying and planting. Plus, the garden kits can help neighbors save around 1,000 gallons of water compared to a traditional grass lawn (not to mention savings on the water bill!).
Gardens will be on sale again starting March 1, 2023, and typically sell out quickly, so mark your calendars now! Stay tuned to the City website and social media for ordering details in early 2023. In the meantime, you can sign up for Resource Central's 2023 Garden In A Box Interest List, and learn more about this and other programs offered on the Resource Central website.
