About our community gardens! Currently we have 9 gardens located in the Salt Lake valley - 3 in Holladay area, 5 in South Jordan, and 1 in West Jordan. You can work in all or part of these gardens. Between all of these garden plots, there are at least 2 acres of rich, fertile soil to grow a lot of food. In one of our Holladay Gardens we have enjoyed working in our large 1200 square foot high tunnel cold frame greenhouse.
The type of person we are looking for is someone who enjoys working with others, outside, and practicing their skills of growing their own food. In return, all of the food grown in our gardens go to our members. We don't sell any of it unless we can't find members who want it!
Members are invited to come and work in our gardens even before they pay the annual membership dues. We want to make sure our garden group is right for you, so come and check us out before officially joining and paying the $100/household annual membership fee (good for 12 consecutive months from when you started). It's impressive how much food our members receive every year!
I hope you'll join us and see for yourself how you can live and actually thrive, rather than just hanging on, surviving with white knuckles in a difficult economy.
Check out my website liveandthrive.com for more details and how to join. You'll see other groups I offer with the same "Active, Outdoor, Healthy Living" theme.
I love teaching people how to grow their own food so they experience for themselves what it's like to shop less at the grocery store, while picking and eating plenty of delicious, home grown food!
Bottom line: If you love locally grown, fresh, delicious produce and want to help you or your family members get away from all of the electronic toys and enjoy working in nature, you'll love our group!
This is a "hands on" garden experience.
I hope you'll come and check out our gardens soon!
