WASATCH COMMUNITY GARDEN - gLENDALE FARMS
Protected in 2023
Salt Lake City, UT
Utah Open Lands and Wasatch Community Gardens united to permanently protect an urban agricultural landscape through a conservation easement in west Salt Lake City, supporting increased local food security. The groundbreaking project is the result of a unique and longstanding partnership between Utah Open Lands and Wasatch Community Gardens that ensures the future of one of Salt Lake City’s flourishing "agrihoods". In total, approximately 2 acres of valuable regenerative agricultural practices and soil is now safeguarded from the threat of concrete. The existing structures and central new ‘barn’ will serve as Wasatch Community Gardens' new Farm Hub.
