“All the world’s problems can be solved in a garden.” Geoff Lawton
Never before has this quote seemed so appropriate. In this time of confusion and division, we need a place to unify, to calm, to inspire. A place in which to gather, to learn, and to grow. A garden holds magic, it holds peace.
At Summit Community Gardens, we hold those values and qualities to be the core of our existence. As a community garden, we gather together to experience nature, to bond over planting seeds, to nourish our bodies with freshly grown fruits and vegetables, and to engage as a community.
We share in a passion that growing food is a way to better health in all disciplines: physical, mental, and spiritual. We encourage the land to thrive as open space, as a beautiful haven of native plants and flowers. We feed the bees, which in turn help feed us. We inspire the community to learn, to grow on their own. We learn to feed our families, and to appreciate the journey from seed to plate. We are a space to gather, to learn, and to grow.
Empowering our community to gather and garden at high altitude.
We are a community-based garden to serve as a destination to gather, learn and grow!
Since 2015, Summit Community Gardens has partnered with Summit County, the Summit Land Conservancy, and Basin Recreation to create and operate a 1.5 acre garden located in the Snyderville Basin. This space is now home to 88 community garden plots, perennial pollinator and firewise demonstration beds, vegetable demonstration beds, a beehive, a kids’ garden, and a compost center.
