Listen to Executive Director, Ken Kullack talk about the Summit Community Garden program and why it’s important to get people to grow their own food during an interview on Christian Center of Park City Executive Director Rob Harder’s podcast series called Nonprofit Leadership.
In case you missed it, our very own Garden Manager, Lynsey Gammon talks on KPCW’s This Green Earth about gardening in our high desert climate.
Our mission at Summit Community Gardens is to educate our community on sustainable and successful gardening techniques in a high desert climate and empower people to grow their own food locally.
A little while ago we asked the local community what they wanted in a community garden. What we heard from you has guided our program to new heights in 2016 with a focus on garden education along with providing a place for people to meet up and start their own garden.
With this new perspective we have evolved the Summit Community Gardens program to include:
– educational classes for kids and adults
– garden plots the community can rent
– a gathering place where people can appreciate and learn about a beautiful garden space
