Get this Community Garden Growing!

$350 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 12 people in 7 months
From Community Members to Corporate Sponsors, the SLC Veggie Swap 501(c)(3) is seeking those who understand the importance of cultivating sustainable, beautiful spaces to enhance and revitalize a community that often gets a "bad rap" -- our very own, South Salt Lake. 

Envision a new type of community garden and farmers market.



See the SLC Veggie Swap community garden filled with much-needed flowering pollinators and creative cultivation projects. Hosting special events:  local concerts, artists, and performers, pet adoptions, educational workshops for young and old, pathways welcoming community members to enjoy, learn and gather.

Farmers' Market Tents set up for swapping surplus veggies and fruits, working with other nonprofit programs like Backyard GardenShare and Green Urban Lunch Box, inviting local artisans, musicians, and Coffee & Food Trucks -- making a stop at this "swapping" market garden, a must!

While the actual garden is cultivated and ready to grow, there is still much to be done.  

How you can help.

Along with structural improvements around the garden space, we are starting weekly garden volunteer meet-ups on Sat and Sunday mornings starting at 10 am. As the summer progresses, these may start earlier, and you can expect other tours, special events, and brown bag volunteer times throughout the week.

Let's Grow the Change -- Thank You.
