The Garden of Wheadon is located on the historic 55 acre farm of Gene and Deane Wheadon, who preserved the land as open space in perpetuity. Turning down offers of millions of dollars to sell their land for development, Gene put it bluntly, "I don't want to sell the farm. Money is no good; you can't eat money. City people don't understand that." The land has now been set aside as a Salt Lake County Park, an urban farm, and our forty plot community garden thanks to the firm conviction of its previous stewards.
