Foodscaping Utah is a 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.
*UPDATE – Due to Covid-19, we are not setting up additional volunteer events at this time. At the moment we are still hoping to hold the events in May that we currently have scheduled (see classes/events), but that is also subject to change. Applications are still open and will be considered in the order in which they are received. However, with this delay, new applicants may be looking at scapes later in 2020 or for spring 2021. 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 2-3 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 farmers market fundraisers and 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.
