THE COMMONS GARDEN
The COMMONS are the cultural and natural resources accessible to all members of society, including natural materials such as air, water, and a habitable earth. These resources are held in common, not owned privately, and cared for by the COMMUNITY.
Garden Location and Hours
The Growing Project’s primary location is a public garden surrounded by a city parking lot behind the FoCo Cafe.
In 2018, TGP reclaimed this urban space to create a community sanctuary for growing, learning, and connecting. The site is a former parking lot and soil contamination means that we use raised beds, not in-ground planting, in the garden. The Commons Garden is located at 225 Maple Street, Fort Collins, 80521 – just west of the Downtown Transit Center.
The garden has no gates or locks and is therefore “open” 24/7. The City of Fort Collins sends security through in the overnight hours, and The Growing Project stewards the space from 7am – 8pm.
