In 2009, a group of Planners working for Provo City decided to transform the underutilized planting beds on the south side of the city campus into a flourishing urban garden. The garden is now in its sixth year. Volunteering their time, the planners have able to grow and donate over 2000 lbs of fresh produce to a local food bank.

The 2010 Planting Season Begins
After what seemed to be an endless winter, the garden participants were finally able to put their shovels in the ground on April 19th, 2010. Last years garden only featured a few of the available beds on the south side of the city campus but this years garden was expanded to include all but 1 of the big beds. In the pictures above, staff volunteers work to haul compost up the staircases to the beds in need of the additional nutrients.
