Community gardens are available at several Intermountain facilities. Here are details about them and how you can get involved.
Fillmore Community Hospital
The garden, which has 33 plots, was created and supervised by Mike Rhinehart, head of the hospital’s maintenance department, and his wife. It's watered using solar-powered valves to reduce energy and water use. It also features a "nibbler box" outside the garden for visitors.
Park City Hospital
Come pick anything you'd like and pull a few weeds while you're there. Anyone who volunteers at least 10 hours in our garden is eligible to receive a free engraved paver. If you have questions, contact Amy Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Primary Children's Wasatch Canyons Campus
Building a community garden "grew" from an idea from a member of the Primary Children's Hospital Board of Trustees, who suggested Intermountain consider solutions to improve access to fresh fruits and vegetables. The garden also provides a way for patients to connect with nature, and for the team to conduct therapy outside occasionally. The garden features wheelchair access, drip irrigation, and room to expand.
Orem Community Hospital
The garden features 46 plots watered using drip irrigation.
