“Wasatch Community Gardens is the model for partnerships in our community. Their programs bring together citizens throughout the valley to grow and eat healthy food together. What better way to build bridges and find common ground than through sharing the experience of growing food together and sharing the bounty. I want to keep my legacy local and am confident that Wasatch Community Gardens is the best investment I can make for the future.”
- Andrea Globokar, Founding Member of the Golden Tomato Society
The Golden Tomato Society is for donors planning a gift to Wasatch Community Gardens in their Will or Trust, or who have named Wasatch Community Gardens a Beneficiary of their Retirement Plan.
By making a planned gift in your Trust or Will, you are investing in Wasatch Community Gardens’ future and the fulfillment of its mission for years to come. To honor this significant commitment, we have created the “Dream-Maker’s Fund” specially for our Golden Tomatoes.
When we receive a bequest, rather than funneling it to our operating and program expenses, it will be put towards projects and initiatives approved by the Board of Directors and Executive Director that enable Wasatch Community Gardens to engage more deeply with community members in ways that celebrate our core values of inclusion, collaboration, joy and stewardship. With your help, we can realize our vision of a community where everyone values and has access to growing and eating healthy and delicious food for generations to come.
