Wasatch Community Gardens’ field trips are designed to meet the standards and objectives of the Utah State Core Curriculum for grades K-5, focusing on science and nutrition through a hands-on experience in our downtown Grateful Tomato Garden. Each field trip is two hours (Kindergarten field trips are 90 minutes) and includes a garden tour, healthy snack, and seasonal grade level specific activity led by Wasatch Community Gardens' experienced youth educators.
Our school field trips run Tuesday-Friday in late spring and early fall. All classes are held, weather permitting, at the Grateful Tomato Garden (615 East 800 South, Salt Lake City).
Field trip size is limited to 35 students (25 for kindergarten), and 1 adult is required for every 10 students (1 adult per 5 students for kindergarten). Additional chaperones may enter free of charge. Reservations are required for all school groups.
