Green Urban Lunch Box

At the heart of the Green Urban Lunch Box is a 35-foot school bus that has been converted into a mobile greenhouse. Each season we utilize different techniques for growing food on the bus in order to show the endless possibilities of urban agriculture. We use the bus as an educational tool to teach children in our community about the scientific, agricultural, and social aspects of growing food in urban and suburban environments.

Our community farm and orchard is a plot of land in Layton that has been reclaimed and cultivated with the help of community members and volunteers. Owned by UDot, this 37-acre orchard had been abandoned for several years, and would still be sitting unused if we had not leased it. The trees produce fruit that we are able to harvest and distribute in food deserts. This incubator farm or farmer training program helps community members develop and maintain small farm plots, growing fresh produce for local markets. This year we had 13 new farmers on the property, working and learning what it take to start a farm bushiness.

Awesome experience dealing with these guys. I purchased almost all my equipment from them as well as my bee packages. Not only is the equipment high quality, but they are priced very competitively.

What makes them stand out is the support they continued to give me afterwards. They always welcomed my questions in emails and over the phone and the advice they have given me has been a huge help.

La Barba Coffee

At La Barba Coffee it’s our aim to roast incredibly great tasting, specialty-grade coffee for Salt Lake City and beyond. We’ve set our standards incredibly high for coffee, and as equally high for our relationships with everyone involved.

All our beans are single origin, sourced from specific farms and regions, and roasted in small batches. We like things simple, functional and honest – which informs our roasting style and attitude behind coffee. Behind each bag of handcrafted coffee is a hardworking group of folks (some with beards), who have lovingly roasted those beans to perfection. No pretension. Locally focused. Ethically sourced. Hopefully charming.
