University Neighborhood Community Garden

University Neighborhood Community Garden

Due to the generous support and commitment towards community from  Intermountain Salt Lake Clinic, the ECC is proud to add this beautiful garden space to our long tradition of parks, open space and gardens. The ECC has entered into a long term lease for this community garden space. Various rules have been established to both manage this garden space in line with the intent towards become a Wasatch Community Garden Network Garden, and also to comply with our lease with  the  safety of all in mind.

If you are interested in joining our garden we suggest you first:

1. Determine if community gardening is right for you. http://eastcentralcc.org/?p=7346

Community gardeners are required to contribute a minimum of six volunteers hours a season in the garden in addition to time spent in their own assigned space, to attend spring and fall garden meetings, and to participate in the overall garden management decisions throughout the year.

2. Read the complete Garden policies, How Our Garden Works http://eastcentralcc.org/?p=7361 , use Water Wise Watering http://eastcentralcc.org/?p=7383 and follow the Organic Standards http://eastcentralcc.org/?p=7379 established for this garden.

3. Complete a Plot Application by contacting us via ecchair@live.com and we will send you an application. If our garden is full you will be placed on the wait list.

How Our Wait list Works:

  • Community members are placed on the waitlist by the date their application is received by the ECC.
  • Open garden plots are filled each spring and as they become available throughout the year, with the next community member on the waitlist.
  • We contact waitlisted gardeners each spring with an update and additional garden opportunities
  • Gardeners will be assigned plots  once they sign the end user agreement.
  • Plots cannot be transferred to co-gardeners.

Other Ideas While You Wait:

  • Look for other opportunities to start another community garden in the neighborhood.
  • Sign up for another community garden in the Wasatch Community Garden network.
  • Attend events and training related to community gardening.
  • Join the Helen’s Neighborhood Orchard team to learn about high density planting and caring for our orchard of 55 fruit trees.
