Our Mission

The Youth Garden Project cultivates healthy children, families, and community through educational programs and connecting people with food from seed to table.

The food we grow informs and inspires our educational practice, and also nourishes our community! Find out where the food from our 1.5 acre garden ends up.

We use the garden as a cross-discipline learning tool that connects kids to the environment and our local food system! Learn more about our youth programming.

Gardening not only builds soil, it also builds community! A garden nurtures many forms of connection. Learn how you can be a part of our community at the youth garden.

 Other Upcoming Farm to Table Events

All proceeds from these events go directly towards our youth and community programming here in Moab. We hope to see you there!

YGPicnic in the Park

Our last Picnic of the season will be October 20, as part of the Arts & Ag market in Swanny Park! Preorder a basket, bring a blanket and games, pick up between 5 and 7pm at the YGP booth, and enjoy a nice fall evening with fresh food, friends, and community. Baskets will highlight YGP produce and are perfect for sharing – they come in two sizes (double or family), and can be vegan or gluten free upon request. Limited availability; Pre-orders will open here one week prior to the picnic!

October Garden Dinner at Sorrel River Ranch

Sorrel River Ranch has very generously offered to host another October Garden Dinner in partnership with YGP on Saturday, October 1st! For our fourth year in collaboration with Sorrel, this dinner will be a bit different than the past: it will be hosted in Sorrel’s very own garden, expertly maintained by farmer Jamie Williams! This event will include a happy hour and tour of the garden, followed by a sunset dinner at a communal table with incredible views of the red rock and Colorado River. Enjoy a farm-to-table meal with new friends in the beautiful Colorado Plateau, all while supporting the Youth Garden Project. Click here to learn more and register.
