The Green Urban Lunch Box
A college student once wanted to replace the concrete parking lot outside her dorm with a small garden plot, but she knew how difficult it would be to grown vegetables in such an urban environment. Through some brainstorming, they decided to build a mobile greenhouse out of a school bus.
This project is now known as The Green Urban Lunch Box. They empower people to connect to their food and community by revitalizing urban spaces and building a resilient food culture. Each season they utilize different techniques for growing food to show the endless possibilities of urban agriculture.
The Green Urban Lunch Box also has a community farm in Salt Lake City that produces fresh produce to distribute in areas of need. It also serves as a farmer training program that helps people develop and maintain small farm plots and grow fresh produce for local markets. To learn more, visit thegreenurbanlunchbox.com.
SelectHealth recognizes the resourceful approach by The Green Urban Lunch Box as another example of how Utah Gives Back.
