Spring Update from WCG

 The weather is warm but not too hot; the soil is starting to warm up; green shoots are coming up everywhere; greens, radishes, and peas are bursting through the soil; birds are singing; and worms are crawling around everywhere you look. It's time to start getting our hands in the dirt!

At Wasatch Community Gardens, we've got a packed line-up of events and workshops happening in April, including our Grow West Garden Fest, our Grow. Eat. Repeat. Fundraising Breakfast, and a wide selection of workshops. We also still have plots available in some of our community gardens, and many of our youth summer camps still have spaces. We want to connect with you through our programs!

We're also gearing up for our Annual Plant Sale on May 9th at Rowland Hall and once again, we're putting together the best selection of organic heirloom vegetables and herbs (including over 60 varieties of heirloom tomatoes!) that you'll find in the valley this spring. I know this weather makes us all want to get those tomatoes and peppers in the ground, but the long-time gardening gurus are still recommending Mother's Day weekend as the time to put those in the ground. Let's all just pull ourselves together, okay?

We're once again offering package deliveries for those of you who can't make the sale. Check out our package order options and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about them. We've also revamped our customer service system to better serve you during the sale and we're once again excited to host a Pop-up Farmers Market in collaboration with the Downtown Farmers Market.

Plant your greens with reckless abandon, but save some space for all of those tomatoes. We've got thousands of them coming on May 9th and a few of them will go perfectly in your garden...
