About the Garden
For the past 50 years, Happiness Garden has been a bedrock community hub for the city of Wheat Ridge. Happiness Gardens is a community garden with full and half-size plots for locals to grow nutritious fruits and vegetables or flowers to enjoy and share.
Our garden program includes water, watering hoses and (some) tools, Master Gardener clinics, “many hands” work groups, natural resources and social gatherings. We practice organic and regenerative agriculture principles.
Happiness Garden is open from sunrise to sunset through the growing season.

Regenerative Agriculture Workshops with Regenerate Wheat Ridge
Regenerate Wheat Ridge connects residents with Happiness Community Gardens through educational events to increase awareness of regenerative urban agriculture practices. Regenerative agriculture is a broad framework of farming, grazing, and growing practices that helps rebuild soil and increases nutrients available for plants. Join our award-winning workshops the 2nd Wednesdays April-October (most take place at Happiness Gardens). Anyone that attends all 7 workshops will receive a Regenerate Wheat Ridge Certificate.
