Jackie Rodabaugh is amazing. She is from Wasatch Community Gardens, ‘Green Phoenix Farm’, a 1.38 acre nonprofit urban farm located in west downtown Salt Lake City.
The ‘Green Team’ donates all produce to low income families, and also provides a job training program for farm-based employment, work readiness training, job placement assistance, and mentoring for women facing homelessness. Program partners help support these women in accessing safe, affordable, and long-term housing.
This 12 week program helps women regain a sense of personal self-worth. They work with mentors to set healthy goals and a plan of action to become self-sustaining.
Green Phoenix Farm is also a place for individuals and groups to learn more about organic gardening. Volunteers are always welcome!
