SALT LAKE CITY — The Sorenson Unity Center is seeking 10 participants for the Youth Income Garden Program, or G-Fresh, from April through September.
The G-Fresh Program teaches youths about gardening and business skills through a hands-on project growing basil in the Unity Gardens Community Garden, later to be harvested and made into different blends of pesto that are then sold at the People’s Market in September.
Participants will learn the basic skills of operating a small business including marketing, customer service, budgeting and more, from volunteer leaders within the community.
Garden plots are also available at Unity Gardens for the 2013 growing season. Unity Gardens is a community garden program for individuals, families and organizations interested in cultivating a garden in a community environment. A $10 deposit is required, which will be returned at the beginning of next season.
The application deadline for both programs is Friday March 22. To obtain an application, contact the Sorenson Unity Center at 801-535-6533, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or pick up an application in person at 1383 S. 900 West.
For more information, contact Van Hoover, Unity Gardens Program Assistant, at 801-535-6539 or email@example.com.
