From Community Members to Corporate Sponsors, the SLC Veggie Swap 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 improvements with this garden, we are evolving into a nonprofit and seek funds to structure this entity as a nonprofit and give it 501(C)3 Status

The garden itself is also in need of many immediate structural and plant-based items, visit our SLC Veggie Swap Wish List:  https://www.slcvegswap.com/the-wish-list.

Your $10 becomes $30. We plan on taking all donations and placing them into an AAA Fair Credit - Utah Saves account, where they will triple match our contributions.

Jen (or Jahnava) Hill, started her in urban agriculture while running a local CSA business, and is now taking this garden to the next level and transforming it into a nonprofit, the SLC Veggie Swap. Hollie Mason is leasing this community garden space and opening her studio (The Point Pilates ) for organizational meetings (2nd Veggie Swap Meeting -- March 24th, Noon to 1 pm) and other upcoming SLC Veggie Swap events.

Very excited to share this vision of a new community garden and farmers' market in South Salt Lake and hope to include your contributions as well as it grows.

Let's Grow the Change -- Thank You.
