We’re looking for garden sponsors!
The Box Elder Community Garden is being established to provide a place for people to have their own raised garden plot for growing food. Through the common love of gardening, our hope is to unite people through social, physical, and nutritional health opportunities while also promoting charitable giving by providing the excess bounty to the local food pantry and/or others in need. Over 3,600 pounds of fresh vegetables were donated to the Box Elder Community Pantry in 2018.
We have been given nearly two acres on which to establish the community garden at 750 East 100 South, the site of Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Brigham City. The garden is registered with the state of Utah as a non-profit organization. We have applied for and received grants and donations of goods and services from several community businesses and some national organizations. Gardeners signed up for all the beds we constructed this year, we need support in being able to construct additional beds to serve those on a waiting list.
We depend on donations and the work of volunteers to establish this green space in Brigham City.
Here are ways you could support and/or partner with us!
Personal donations in any amount are welcome and appreciated, as are donations of designated items.
If you are a business, corporation, or individual, you could sponsor a garden plot, based on linear feet, and have first use of the space for you or your employees for a season. In return, the Box Elder Community Garden places a plaque on the garden plot acknowledging you or your company as the sponsor of the garden bed for a period of at least 5 years or longer, depending on the longevity of the bed. The garden would also provide an advertisement for your company on our website, Facebook page, and local newspaper. Your donation could be utilized for tax savings since we are a registered non-profit organization.
The money you donate pays for costs of building the planting beds, water, electricity, and maintenance. Bed construction is of treated fir and steel brackets, filled with a topsoil/compost mix and watered utilizing an automatic timed drip system.

|Half +||$550||60 feet by 4 feet|
