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.

Upcoming Events and Opportunities

All proceeds from sales and events go directly towards our youth and community programming here in Moab. 

Free Workshop Series: The Cultivation and Preparation of Five Essential Herbs

Join us in YGP’s garden and kitchen on Tuesday May 23rd and Tuesday May 30th for this two-part informational series led by herbalist Emily Stock of Sundial Medicinals. Five essential household herbs will be explored in depth: how to grow them, when to use them, and how to harvest them. Each herb will have a different preparation method demonstrated in the kitchen, so participants will learn a variety of medicine making!

We’ll meet at 5pm on the YGP patio. Please register for this free event at the link below!
