Welcome to our

7th Annual

Live and Thrive

Working Community Garden Group!


We are a hands-on, working community garden group with lots of flexibility! 

All ages and abilities are welcome.

Garden experience and knowledge is helpful but not required.

If you

  • love being active and trying new things
  • enjoy working outdoors
  • want to be more self reliant
  • have a passion to learn gardening skills
  • want to meet other healthy-minded people
  • have a positive attitude and enjoy variety
  • love to eat freshly picked harvest that you helped to grow...

then you will fit in well with our group!


How to get started: 

  • Register online or in person now to start receiving full benefits!
  • Attend as a visitor a few times, if you prefer. 

As a visitor, come and take a quick tour or come ready to work with us for all or part of our group work session.

Work with others who have similar abilities, interests and passions.

After attending a few times, registration is required.  Struggling financially?  Payment plans are offered, if necessary. Contact Sheryl. See contact info at bottom of page.

Our nine gardens are located in Holladay, South Jordan and West Jordan.  Work in one location or all of them. It's up to you.


Contribute in a way that works best for you. 

Elderly members, for example, have been some of our best workers!  They move the work along as they sit on a chair and work in our gardens! 


Being in a garden is very therapeutic and working in one is even better!


I hope you’ll join us!
