About the Garden 

*UPDATE: We still have plots available.  We ask that you abide by the CDC Social Distancing rules and wear gloves and masks at all times working in and around the garden area and garden shed.

Orchard Community Garden is a beautification and community-building project in the City of North Salt Lake. Our mission is to continue fostering community relationships through sustainable agriculture and shared education.

The garden includes twenty larger plots (8x4) and six smaller plots (4x4). Each plot is watered by an automatic drip system. The water supply is maintained by the City, but each plot user must maintain their own drip system. The water will be turned on each year beginning April 15th.

Each plot user is responsible for maintaining their plot, preparing the soil, planting, weeding, and end-of-season cleanup.

Applications may be emailed to deenac@nslcity.org.  Payment can be taken over the phone. Please call 801-335-8721.
