School Field Trips

Wasatch Community Gardens’ field trips are designed to meet the standards and objectives of the Utah State Core Curriculum for grades 1-4, focusing on science and nutrition through a hands-on experience in our downtown Grateful Tomato Garden. Each field trip is two hours long and includes a garden tour, healthy garden snack, and seasonal, grade level specific activity led by Wasatch Community Gardens' experienced youth educators.

Our school field trips run Monday-Thursday in late spring and early fall. All classes are held, weather permitting, at the Grateful Tomato Garden (800 S 600 E).

Field trip size is limited to 35 students, and 1 adult is required for every 10 students.  Additional chaperones may enter free of charge. Reservations are required for all school groups.

Our 2017-2018 Field Trip schedule is as follows:

Fall, 2017: September 5 – November 2

Spring, 2018: April 16 – May 31

Field Trips are free to all public schools in the 2017-2018 school year. There is a charge for private and charter schools.

Title 1 schools are eligible for a $100 bus reimbursement. There are a limited number of reimbursements available. Please indicate in your email if you are seeking reimbursement for this expense.
