So far we haven't had much going on, but I am looking for ways to get the word out that I am willing to share some garden space. I have a potager garden, but think that there should be someone out there willing to play in the dirt with me.
Living close to Manitou Springs (which is a transition town) I would not have thought it to be so hard to find someone.

Also in Colorado Springs, closer to Security area, so not terribly far from you! Joined the CoSpgs group you started here, and am trying to see who else in the area may be interested!
Security is not so far away, are you ready for fall? The cold rain has started here... guess the pretty weather could not last forever. Got most of the stuff that needed doing finished up and now I am cuddled with little dogs, a hot cuppa coffee, and some zucchini bread!
I am in Security as well. My wife and I have been considering a yard share for over a year now, but have now actively started looking at all of the resources to facilitate this.

Have a great day.

The best resource I have found so far is to put a note up at the local health food store. I have gotten the best response from this. With just a couple of hard and fast rules things seem like they are going to work out. Like... no drug use in the garden. Things like "I bear no responsibility if you put the rake through your head" kind of disclaimer will make your insurance agent look upon you more kindly.
Thanks! These will come in handy.

I'd love to work in your garden but its a bit far. I'm on the northeast side of the Springs, Powers and Research area. Know anyone wanting garden help in that area? Only complaint I have is my space limit with our place here.
