Community Garden organizations are one of the few places many urban dwellers can grow their own food. Wasatch Community Gardens is more than just a few plots of soil in Salt Lake City. On the podcast today we talk to the executive director, Ashley Patterson, about the importance of Community Gardens and the impact Wasatch Community Gardens has on those living in the Salt Lake City Valley.
Ashley Patterson has been involved with Wasatch Community Gardens for more than a decade, serving as the organization’s Board Chair from 2005-2008. Before joining the staff as Executive Director in 2012, Ashley was responsible for communicating sustainability initiatives and mentoring students to complete sustainability-oriented projects at the University of Utah. She serves on Salt Lake City’s Food Policy Task Force, is a board member of the Salt Lake County Farm Bureau, and is a member of the Agriculture Advisory Board for the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food.
If you like food, sustainability, and local movers and shakers this episode is for you. We also give a few gardening tips at the end of the episode.
