At Wasatch Community Gardens, we are actively pursuing a site to build CityGarden, an urban agriculture hub that will house our offices, a commercial kitchen to use for youth and adult classes, a workshop space for our education programs, and most importantly, a demonstration garden to help community members learn to grow and eat healthy, organic food.
We aim to have a site selected by 2017, and we have already secured over $300,000 to begin our capital campaign for this project.
The CityGarden project will showcase the possibilities of urban agriculture. Regardless of the end design, our goal is to have no net loss of growing space on the site as a result of construction. The project seeks to prove, in a variety of ways, that urban densities needn’t come at the expense of people’s connection to their food or their community.
Thanks to GSBS Architects for providing this preliminary concept.
