Foodscaping Utah is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run by volunteers. Services are free of charge, but donations are greatly appreciated. Donations help us help more people grow their own food and are tax deductible. Click here if you are interested in donating toward our materials grant, which can help others in need gain access to nutritious food.
*UPDATE – Application for spring 2023 is now closed. All new applicants received will be considered for the 2024 season.
Volunteer foodscaping opportunities will soon be posted for Saturdays in May and early June. Hands-on volunteering is a great way to learn how to get started growing food. Sign up for our volunteer email list here. In the meantime, check out the ‘learn’ tab on our website and our YouTube channel for tons of information on installing your own foodscape.
How our foodscaping program works:
You invite your family, friends, neighbors, and anyone you can think of to a foodscaping party, or in other words, a “scape”. We bring tools and additional volunteers and spend 2 hours converting your front yard into a foodscape. You will be paired with a foodscape coordinator who will work with you to plan and prepare for your scape, as well as provide continuing garden support and education.
Applicants must live in or very near Ogden, Utah and be interested in an edible garden that is visible to the general public. Recipients are asked to donate 10% of the produce grown to Foodscaping Utah for donations to local food banks. Recipients are also asked to pay it forward in another way, such as: volunteering at another Scape, helping others in your neighborhood start a foodscape, making a monetary contribution to Foodscaping Utah, or in some other way that advances our mission to help people learn how to grow their own food and transform landscapes.
Please fill out the information below and a scape coordinator will contact you with more details about Foodscaping Utah and how we’ll help you grow vegetables, fruit trees, small fruits (strawberries, grapes, etc), herbs and native plants in your own front yard. We are all about helping people grow their own food in a way that looks great and works for them.
