Workshops and Webinars
Come and gain hands on skills through our series of organic gardening workshops! Our Community Education classes are normally held throughout the year in classroom, greenhouse and garden settings. However, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and government-issued recommendations that Utahns refrain from large social gatherings, we are currently offering a selection of our most popular classes via webinar (on-line) format. Recorded versions of our live webinars will also be made available for registration and on demand viewing several days following each live presentation. We appreciate your patience as we continue to modify our gardening curriculum while keeping everyone safe.
In addition to offering educational workshops and webinars, we also host "Garden Coaching" sessions most Wednesdays from March through August via Facebook Live. Please join us for timely garden advice and live garden Q&A on Wednesdays from 4:30-5:30 on the Wasatch Community Gardens' Facebook page. Follow our page for updates on the Facebook Live schedule.
We offer a limited number of reduced-tuition scholarships for low-income individuals. See below for the online application.
A limited number of reduced tuition scholarships are available to low-income individuals for each of our workshops unless noted otherwise in the description. We encourage low income community members and students to take advantage of these scholarships. Ensuring that our garden education is affordable and available for all members of the community is important to our organization!
Quotes From our Students!
“Prior to the classes my gardening success was mostly luck not knowledge; classes reinforced so things I was already doing and gave me actual knowledge to succeed.”
“Most of my confidence comes from techniques that I learned in the classes. There are times when I try everything that I know and I am still not successful at gardening. That is when I want to learn more and take more workshops”
“Wonderful people; beautiful grounds; exciting courses offered; lots of love and graciousness evident around the place. Thanks to WCG.”
“I'm very thankful for your strong presence in the community. Although we don't attend as many workshops as we like, I feel supported in our gardening interests and endeavors knowing that enthusiastic and knowledgeable instruction is easily available. Thank you!”
“Marybeth and the team at Wasatch Community gardens are outstanding! I have enjoyed every workshop that I have taken and I have learned so many skills and techniques. Thank you for having a variety of classes and offering them frequently”
“Marybeth is such an amazing educator!! I would come to a class just because she gets me excited about gardening more than anything else!”
“The garlic workshop I attended was awesome. Learned a lot and was excited to plant the garlic given right after the class. The instructor was excellent and hands on learning in the field was very effective and thank you for the take home garlic to plant at home!”
“I really began to grow the majority of my plants from seed after taking the “Flower Seed Starting Indoors” workshop. I learned so much of what was needed to start seeds indoors, such as the necessities like lights, etc. Since then, I also incorporate lots of flowers in my veggie beds to attract more beneficial and plus, it looks pretty. Overall, I have always taken away some new piece of knowledge from every workshop I have attended”
