Long’s Gardens seeking conservation easement to preserve 25-acre Boulder property’s agricultural use - Boulder Daily Camera
Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks is assisting with the discussion because of the department’s expertise on easements, said Bethany Collins, open space interim real estate supervisor. But, if an agreement is reached, the purchase would be made using the city’s general fund, not open space dollars.
The city’s current discussions around the easement started six years ago. At the time, concerns included if an easement would be an effective way to keep the property as a community garden.
Conservation easements, which are perpetual and remain in effect when a property is sold, limit development, but typically don’t restrict a site to a specific use, such as a community garden.
Boulder’s mayor at the time suggested buying the property outright, but the Long family isn’t interested in selling. In previous discussion, the family noted that, if the city bought the land, a future council could decide that the property would be better used for housing.
“Given the development pressure in Boulder, a conservation easement always seemed like the best thing to do to ensure that our property will stay in agriculture,” said owner Catherine Long Gates. “We seem to be on a good path with a council that’s supportive. I really hope we can get this done.”
Long Gates, who owns the property along with her sister and a contingent of out-of-state cousins, said the family also isn’t in a position to donate the development rights.
While the terms of the easement are still under discussion, she said, one possibility is including an affirmative agriculture covenant stipulating there will be agriculture uses on the property.
She said she also doesn’t want the easement to be too restrictive given the unknowns of what may be needed in the future, especially with climate change, to make farming viable. She used shade structures as an example of what may need to be added in the future.
A third generation farmer, Long Gates runs the property’s iris garden. Her horticulture business was founded by her grandfather, Jesse D. Long, who started a seed store in Boulder in 1905, then bought the land in 1916. The main building used for the iris business includes the original seed bins, while farm equipment dates back to the 1940s.
It was in the 1970s that a community group petitioned the Boulder City Council for a community garden. Long’s father offered to let the city lease part of his property. Growing Gardens took over the lease and the garden management about 20 years ago.
Long Gates, who has lived on the property her whole life, noted she and her husband don’t have children, so there’s no fourth generation to take over. And younger relatives aren’t lining up for the “every day, all year long commitment” of running a farm, she said.
