Our Mission & Values

Empowering people to grow and eat healthy, organic, local food.

Wasatch Community Gardens has served Wasatch Front residents since 1989 with the belief that the quality of a community is directly related to the quality of its food. We offer garden space, educational programs, and community events to empower people to grow, harvest, preserve, and prepare fresh, healthy food. We execute our mission through five main programs: Community Garden Program, Youth Garden Program, School Garden Program, Community Education Program, and the Green Team Farm.

Our Mission & Vision

The mission of Wasatch Community Gardens is to empower people to grow and eat healthy, organic, local food. Since 1989, we have provided children, adults, and families in Salt Lake County with access to land and education for growing and eating fresh produce, while building and nurturing community connections through gardening and healthy food. We accomplish this through four main programs: Community Garden, Community Education, Youth and School Garden, and Job Training Programs.

We envision a community where everyone values and has access to growing and eating healthy and delicious food.
