Community Organizing

More than half of the community gardens we support are located in low-income neighborhoods of Salt Lake County.

Though our 9-week Growing Community Gardens leadership training, we build the leadership and organizing skills of 20-30 community garden organizers every year. Graduates of of the program have gone on to start more than 15 successful community garden and school garden projects across Salt Lake County over the last three years.

The Wasatch Community Gardens Network supports more than 20 community and school garden projects throughout Salt Lake County.

Wasatch Community Gardens supported the growth of 9 new community gardens in 2011

Having my own plot where I can grow my own healthy food is a little dream come true. I am excited to be able to have a space that is only a few blocks away from my apartment. I also look forward to the opportunity to be more involved in my community…I truly believe we can change the world, one garden at a time.

In 2012, Wasatch Community Gardens provided direct support and capacity building to 25 community gardens around Salt Lake County.

When we make gardening part of our identity and our culture it becomes more than the norm, it becomes expected.
