VODA worked with the Artspace organization and Wasatch Community Gardens to help craft a new community garden in downtown Salt Lake City. VODA applauds any effort to improve the neighborhood, and to build a stronger sense of community in our city. As landscape architects, we support programs that will educate the wider population of the city on issues of land stewardship, environmental sustainability, food security, and quality public spaces. This project was a prototype for future community gardens to be sponsored at Artspace’s other properties in the downtown area. VODA helped to facilitate public meetings, design, and cost estimation.
