New Community Garden Open House

We have a magnet on our refrigerator in the office that says, “Try organic food.  Or as your grandparents called it, food.” Common sense?  Maybe.

But some people might not realize this.  Help empower your community to try organic food in your neighborhood, or as your grandparents called it, food, by starting a community garden.

Come to our New Community Garden Open Houses
City & County Building, 451 S State St, Salt Lake City
Saturday, October 18th
10:00am – 12:30pm

Wasatch Community Gardens partners with Salt Lake City Green to manage Green City Growers, a program that provides residents with access to community gardens on City-owned land.

In 2015, WCG will aim to start two new community gardens, but we need your help!

WCG and SLCgreen will host two open houses to answer questions and discuss ideas how your support can lead to a new community garden in the following neighborhoods:

Stratford Park (2635 S Preston St)
Hawthorn (1700 S 700 E)
Dilworth Elementary (1985 S 2100 E)
Cortez Water (500 N East Capitol Blvd)
Warm Springs Park (1020 N Beck St)
Millcreek (2700 S 1300 E)
337 S 400 E

For more information about the application process, please contact Van at or 801.359.2658 x 16.

Applications for new community gardens are due by December 1, 2014.
