Summit Community Gardens – We Grow To Give
SAVE THE DATE
Our 2nd Annual Dig In! Dinner in the Garden, in partnership with EATS Park City, will be held on September 10th. Help us celebrate National Family Meals Month. More details to come.
For the first time ever, we’re offering 4 different week-long camps for children ages 7-12 at the garden. Through hands-on activities, your child will learn about insects, seeds, harvesting veggies and so much more. Registration opens on April 1st.
The Garden Bounty Project has begun for 2017! If you aren’t familiar with our program, it’s our way of giving back to the community by donating fresh, organic produce we grow in our garden to those in need. We work with a number of local nonprofits who distribute our food to their clients. You can learn more about our program here.
And if you work for a nonprofit organization and are interested in becoming a recipient of this program, please fill out an application here.
If you haven’t seen our new garden yet, take a virtual Garden Tour here and learn about what makes our garden unique.
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 build and strengthen our community by educating, empowering, and providing an opportunity for people to grow their own food successfully and sustainably.
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, 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
