Green Team Farm

Started in 2016, the Green Team Farm Project is a farm-based job training program that aims to simultaneously revitalize an underutilized urban area while providing opportunities for women who are facing homelessness. During the 10-month program, participants learn basic organic gardening techniques, intensive vegetable production strategies, small farm management expertise, and other job skills.

The goals of the Green Team Farm Project are as follows:

  • Facilitate permanent employment and housing for the women participating in the program.
  • Increase healthy food access for low-income individuals and families in the Salt Lake Valley by selling the produce to nonprofits that serve these populations.
  • Create a vibrant community space and increase community involvement by revitalizing this underutilized urban area.

The Green Team Farm, located at 622 W 100 S, Salt Lake City, is managed by Wasatch Community Gardens in partnership with Advantage Services and the Downtown Alliance on land owned by the Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City.
