What would the urban landscape around SLC look like without the influence of Wasatch Community Gardens? Over the past 30 years, the WCG has always gone way, way beyond simply offering local residents affordable plots at their 17 neighborhood gardens.
From 4th East to West Valley City, these organic community gardens provide space to learn, gather and enjoy something that is sadly lacking in modern cities. And that is GREEN, undeveloped open space!!
Early in the spring, we look forward to WCG’s annual Plant Sale—which is the best way to support this group and hook up with some incredible heirloom garden variety veggie starts. To applaud avid backyard gardeners, WCG’s Urban Garden Tour is another fun way to get to visit and ask questions to some of the most seasoned urban gardeners around town. Love a sandwich? Who doesn’t? (A weirdo.) At the season’s end, WCG’s Tomato Days is a generous gift, giving back to the community with free and delicious tomato sandwiches.
This year, WCG is turning 30. And, its 30th Anniversary Celebration promises to be a grassroots, rip-roaring party celebrating the many individuals and families at WCG’s heart and soul. It will feature live music, surprise guests from WCG’s storied past, harvest games, and delicious light fare. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available to purchase. We suggest you go.
Tickets are $10 for adults; kids 12 and under are free.
