Description

Food Production Tour 
A visit to the pottager at the Urban Garden Company brings a little country to the city.  Experience community-supported agriculture and hunger relief on an international scale with the next stop at Welfare Square. The New Roots Garden, a program of the International Rescue Committee, integrates new Americans into our systems while providing means to grow foods important to their native cultures. We complete the tour at the Grateful Tomato Garden operated by Wasatch Community Gardens—one of many gardens providing gardening and education opportunities for city residents.
