SLCgreen - Community Gardens

Salt Lake City has taken measures to increase food production locally through community gardens and urban farming. It also has pledged full support of Salt Lake County’s initiative to increase urban farming along the Wasatch Front.

Salt Lake City recognizes the important role community vegetable gardens play in supporting our local food system, and has partnered with Wasatch Community Gardens to develop and coordinate sustainable, flourishing community gardens on City-owned land.

In order to help facilitate the development of new gardens, the City has identified 8 City-owned or managed parcels located on properties with access to a waterline and other conditions conducive to creating a successful and sustainable community garden.

Salt Lake City also has community garden opportunities at Off Broadway Community GardenRose ParkCannon Greens and Popperton Plots community gardens. Please contact Wasatch Community Gardens for information.
