Popperton Plots Mission Statement

"Our mission is to grow healthy food and cultivate relationships through sharing local resources, knowledge, and a diverse community."

Several potential locations were considered, including Kay Rees Park and a section of Lindsey Gardens at 10th Avenue and M Street. In  2013, the City announced the availability of city park space for community garden use at Popperton Park. The Avenues Garden Committee collaborated with Wasatch Community Gardens, receiving grants and garden leadership training attended by James Woolf and Michael Hughes. With the assistance of countless volunteers and organizations including VODA Landscape + Planning and Salt Lake City’s SLCgreen initiative, and funds from Wasatch Community Gardens, the Greater Avenues Community Council and Slow Food Utah, Popperton Plots opened to eager gardeners in the Spring of 2014.

The site is approximately 1/3 acre and has an unobstructed view of the entire Salt Lake valley. It is a showpiece community garden and the GACC is proud to support the continued development of this important community venture. Popperton Plots is an official garden of the Wasatch Community Gardens. Please visit our information page HERE. Our community garden is located at 1450 East Popperton Park Way, Salt Lake City, Utah 84114 (map & directions).
