Urban Garden & Farm Tour

“Farm-to-table” and “organic” are tossed around so much that they have practically lost all integrity and meaning, but Wasatch Community Gardens doesn’t think it has to be that way.

The Urban Garden & Farm Tour on Saturday, June 25 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. is a chance for Salt Lake Valley residents to learn and share ideas about how to build self-sustaining communities with fresh food. This self-guided tour includes stops at backyards, urban homesteads and community gardens that embody the Wasatch Community Gardens’ mission to “empower people of all ages and incomes to grow and eat healthy, organic, local foods.”

The event is ages 12+ and costs $10 per person. Once participants register, they will receive a downloadable tour guide with details about each stop on the self-guided tour. To purchase tickets, click here.
