It's not too early to start thinking about gardening.

What's new: The "Grow a Garden" program from Denver Urban Gardens is now available to everyone.

What to know: DUG's program is designed to provide fresh produce to lower-income families, but it is expanding to 1,500 organic garden seed kits this year, director Linda Appel Lipsius tells us.

  • The kits — which come with gardening guides — are themed with vegetables and herbs that match what you can make, such as salsa, pizza, salad and "fry and ferment."

How it works: Apply online for a kit and set your preferred pickup location for the week of May 9.

  • It works on a pay-what-you-can system with a recommended cost of $60.
  • For those who can't afford it, they can get them for free.
