Whether you were able to grow your own or not this season, Wasatch Community Gardens is hosting an end of the season tomato sandwich party, and you are invited. The WCG is also celebrating its 30th year, as a non-profit created to empower people of all ages and incomes to grow and eat healthy, organic and local food.
Bring your friends, bring your kids, they will be serving up delicious sliced heirloom tomato and pesto sandwiches, and it’s free!! Here are the tomato party deets:
