Welcome to Wasatch Community Gardens
Our mission is to empower people of all ages and incomes to grow and eat healthy, organic, local food.
We believe the quality of a community is directly related to the quality of its food. We exist to build community by providing the space to garden, the expertise to assist others, and the education to empower current and future generations of organic gardeners. By doing so, we not only improve our community's green space, but we also improve our community's health, vitality, and self-reliance.
Find out more by exploring our many different programs, workshops, events, and volunteer opportunities.
Letter from the Executive Director, August 2014
Tomato Days are upon us...
Ah, the beloved garden grown, heirloom tomato. Who doesn't look forward to eating literally buckets of them armed with only a salt shaker and a napkin to wipe the juices off your chin?
Wasatch Community Gardens celebrates our red, yellow, purple, green, striped, and white friends during our upcoming Tomato Days. During the month of September, visit one of the fabulous participating restaurants and enjoy the featured heirloom tomato-themed dish, and they will donate a portion of the proceeds to support our work to empower people of all ages and incomes in our community to grow and eat healthy, organic, local food. Eat at some of the best restaurants in the area and support WCG? Sounds like a win-win to me...
In addition, as always, we've got a slew of fun workshops happening in August, and be sure to check out our now famous Summer in a Jar series in partnership with the Downtown Alliance, Slow Food Utah and Harmon's City Creek. How fun is it to take out fresh garden goodness in the depths of winter to get out of the doldrums?
There still a few spots left in our City Sprouts Summer Camps and there's lots of activity in our community gardens, including the oh so delicious Tomato Sandwich Party coming up on September 6th at the Grateful Tomato Garden.
Sick of tomatoes yet? Nope, me neither.
Hope to see you all in the garden soon,
