Job Training Program

Started in 2016, the Job Training Program is located at 622 W 100 S in Salt Lake City

The Green Team aims to simultaneously revitalize an underutilized urban area while providing opportunities for women who are experiencing homelessness. During the 10-month program, participants study organic agriculture techniques, rediscover and cultivate a solid work ethic, and work to restore their sense of confidence.  The program is a partnership between Wasatch Community Gardens (WCG) and Advantage Services. 

Expanding on the success of the Green Team, WCG launched Seeds of Success in 2019, focusing on assisting single mothers living in poverty. Seeds of Success is a job training and placement program that leverages the therapeutic environment of the farm to help participants develop strong professional and social networks.  The program will capitalize on the positive role that gardening and healthy eating can play in the journey from poverty to self sufficiency for struggling families. WCG executes the program through a partnership with Climb Wyoming (www.climbwyoming.org), a nonprofit with 30 years of experience moving families out of poverty.
