Youth Garden Project in Moab

Farm-to-table at the Youth Garden

Garden Dinner, Brunch, and YGPizza Night events are delicious and unique experiences for locals and visitors alike, celebrating the seasonal abundance of food sourced on site, from the Moab Valley, and the wider Colorado Plateau region!

Order ahead for YGPizza Night! Staff and volunteers will prepare your pizza with ingredients fresh from the garden, and fire-roast it in the cob oven where they come out perfect every time! 2022 dates to come. 

Each year, YGP hosts a buffet-style Mother’s Day Brunch at the garden using delicious, spring veggies, eggs from the YGP chickens, and more! Tickets are priced affordably, and children 2 or younger eat for free.

YGP Garden Dinners have been around for many years now, but each one is a little different! For a Garden Dinner event, we invite guest chefs to the garden to prepare a four-course meal using fresh garden produce. Guests are seated throughout the garden or at a long communal table and enjoy their locally grown meal in the midst of the garden’s beauty. Ample time is allowed between courses for guests to savor the flavors and enjoy time spent among family, friends, and fellow food enthusiasts. Garden Dinners are scheduled throughout the growing season.

All proceeds from our farm-to-table events support hands-on, garden-based learning and engagement experiences for youth and community members in Moab. Come enjoy the bounty of the garden with us!

We are always interested in working with new chefs! If you are excited to put together a seasonally-inspired menu celebrating local food, give us a call at 435.259.2326 or email jessie@youthgardenproject.org.

Early Morning Orchard responsibly grows high quality, nutrient-dense produce on 6 acres in Palisade, Colorado, alongside cultivating 10 acres of fruit trees. Early Morning Orchard’s mission is to build community through education, food accessibility, and being a model of appropriate land stewardship and regenerative agricultural techniques. The Early Morning team will be kicking off our Garden Dinner season with a beautiful garden-to-table meal highlighting summer produce.

For all Garden Dinners, reservations are required and seating is limited. Tickets are $50. Proceeds from the dinner will benefit YGP’s youth and community programs, such as Garden Classroom Field Trips, YGP Summer Camp, CareShare produce donations, and more!

At Garden Dinners, we offer the option of sitting at a community table as a way to connect with other folks over local food and celebration.
