#GivingTuesday, December 1, 2020 - Virtual Open House!

Thank you for your support this #GivingTuesday, Decemeber 1! If you were unable to join us on the day, it's not too late to celebrate the superpowers of fresh fruits and veggies with a virtual Wasatch Community Gardens "Open House." 

#GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.  This year, we celebrated throughout the day with some fun interactive activities for WCG supporters of all ages: simply click on the videos below to see what you missed! 


GT Story time Landing PageJoin our Youth & School Program for a series of garden activities just for kids! We'll kick things off as we "Get Up, Get Active" in the garden. Then, learn how to make a delicious "Bug on a Leaf" with strawberries. Finally, enjoy your snack while you listen to the indigenous story of "The Three Sisters."




GT Cooking Demo Landing PageJoin our Green Phoenix Farm team and Mark Miller Subaru for an on-farm cooking demonstration!
