The Youth Garden Project hosts a variety of workshops throughout the year. Workshop instructors are often community members or YGP staff who have expertise in a given field. Previous topics have included: seed germination, fruit tree pruning, wild edibles, food preservation, bread making, irrigation 101, herbal medicinals, pollinators, DIY composting and more!



Led by our very own Garden Manager, Sarah Perez-Sanz

Believe it or not, the spring is approaching and it’s time to start thinking about sowing seeds! Join us at the Youth Garden Project to learn about starting plants from seed at home, what to start indoors versus what to direct seed, cost effective starting techniques, a basic “how-to”, and more!

Cost: $10 (tuition assistance available upon pre-request)

In partnership with the Moab Garden Club!

Tuesday, March 1st


This year we will be partnering with the Moab Garden Club for a Seed Swap Social! Stop by any time between 5:00-7:00pm with seeds saved from your own garden or seed packets you no longer need! We will have a set up in the Shafer Home with a seeded treat to snack on throughout the evening. Please bring your seeds labeled and dated. YGP will provide bags and additional labeling supplies.

No RSVP needed, but questions welcome! Give us a jingle!


If you or someone you know is interested in guest-teaching a workshop for our community, please contact Julie Zender by calling 435-259-2326 or e-mail:
