Salt Lake City Green, in partnership with The Green Urban Lunch Box, will be hosting a film screening of Growing Cities in celebration of Food Day.

Growing Cities, a film about urban farming in America, examines the role of urban farming in our culture and its power to revitalize our cities and change the way we eat. Learn more at GrowingCitiesMovie.com.

The Green Urban Lunch Box will have their mobile greenhouse on site! Come tour this converted 35-foot school bus before the screening. Trust us, it’s not-to-be-missed!

Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food. Learn more at FoodDay.org.

FruitShare Volunteers Needed this Saturday!

SLC FruitShare helps to minimize food waste, promote local food production, and enhance the community’s knowledge of fruit trees by engaging local fruit tree owners.

Throughout the year, fruit trees are pruned, thinned and the fruit is then picked and donated to non-profits working on sustainable food and hunger issues (Utahns Against Hunger and Green Urban Lunchbox).

We are in great need for volunteers this Saturday! SLCgreen will hold a FruitShare Event on May 17th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Volunteer teams will help thin fruit on apricot trees in the Sugar House and East Bench neighborhoods. Thinning fruit will help the trees grow strong, healthy fruit throughout the rest of the season and allow us to come back later this year and pick a greater yield.

No experience is necessary – training will be done with volunteers on site.

To sign up, please contact Lauren Aguilar.
