#GivingTuesday - Virtual Open House at Wasatch Community Gardens

This #GivingTuesday, December 1, we will be celebrating the superpowers of fresh fruits and veggies with a virtual Wasatch Community Gardens "Open House." #GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. At WCG, we will celebrate by inviting you to join us for Story Time and to make a garden-themed craft with us (kid-friendly!); sharpen up your cooking skills with a delicious Fall Squash Soup recipe and demonstration from the team at the Green Phoenix Farm; meet the red wiggler composting worms and learn how to care for them; tune in for our third annual #GivingTuesday Facebook Live gardening Q&A session at 4:30 pm; and toast the end of the day with a delicious tomato-based beverage. Look out for more details on the morning of December 1, and follow us on Facebook for regular updates.
