Community Garden

Draper City submitted an application to the Salt Lake County Urban Farming Program to request a Community Garden in Salt Lake County's Wheadon Farm Park in Draper.  This program will provide residents in Draper an opportunity to participate in the "Parks for Produce" Community Garden Program next summer. Salt Lake County (SLCO) will set aside part of their land in Wheadon Park for the community garden. Draper City is accepting applications from residents to participate in the program. 

Salt Lake County will partner with the Wasatch Community Gardens (WCF) to provide ongoing support for the site. Under WCG’s coordination, gardeners will help develop the site and handle most day to day operations. There will be a cost to gardeners to participate on a yearly basis (typical plot fees are from $20 to $40). The mission of the WCG is to empower people of all ages and incomes to grow and eat healthy, organic, local food. The WCF will provide staff assistance in community organizing, volunteer coordination, infrastructure repair, financial management, gardener applicant processing, general trouble shooting, and conflict mediation.
