Harrison Garden Petition

Salt Lake City recognizes the important role community vegetable gardens play in supporting our local food system, and has partnered with Wasatch Community Gardens (WCG) to develop and coordinate sustainable, flourishing community gardens on City-owned land. In order to help facilitate the development of new gardens, Salt Lake City has identified City-owned or managed parcels located on properties with access to a waterline and other conditions conducive to creating a successful and sustainable community garden.

Salt Lake City partners with WCG to select and provide ongoing support for each site. Under WCG’s coordination, gardeners help develop the site and handle many day-to-day operations. There is a cost to gardeners to participate on a yearly basis (typical plot fees are from $20 to $40), determined by WCG. New gardens are designed with ADA accessibility. 

The northwest corner of Harrison and 700 East is one potential site for a new community garden in 2022. The application will get final approval based on demonstration of community support, and funding for that fiscal year.

By filling out the petition form, your name will be added to the community support petition for a new community garden at the northwest corner of Harrison and 700 East.
