"Our mission is to grow healthy food and cultivate relationships through sharing local resources, knowledge, and a diverse community."

History

PoppertonLogo 300x300Logo designed by Maggie Hawley and digitized by Jared CisnerosIn 2013, the City announced it had set aside space in several parks for community garden use, and allocated the Avenues a parcel of land in Popperton Park. The Greater Avenues Community Council formed the Avenues Garden Committee, and through funding grants to Wasatch Community Gardens – and with the assistance of countless volunteers and organizations including VODA Landscape + Planning and Salt Lake City’s SLCgreen initiative – Popperton Plots opened to eager gardeners in 2014.

The site is approximately 1/3 acre and has an unobstructed view of the entire Salt Lake valley. It is a showpiece community garden and the GACC is proud to support the continued development of this important community venture.

Popperton Plots is an official garden of the Wasatch Community Gardens. Please visit our information page HERE.

Our community garden is located at 1450 East Popperton Park Way, Salt Lake City, Utah 84114 (map & directions).
