(KSL News) A group is trying to save a vegetable garden in downtown Salt Lake, and they want you to help.
Wasatch Community Gardens in on 555 S. 400 East. The vegetable garden provides affordable plots of land to 25 families who don't have a place to grow their own food.
This year, the land leased by Wasatch Community Gardens was sold to the Community Development Corporation, which builds affordable housing.
But the corporation is giving Wasatch Gardens the opportunity to buy the land back, if they can raise $250,000 by this coming March. Emily Aagaard, executive director of Wasatch Community Gardens, says, "It's the community that created this garden; that's why it exists, and so it's really the community's responsibility to save this treasure and this special space that has been here for over a quarter century."
Wasatch Gardens is hoping to raise money through donations. If you'd like to help, please click on the related link.
