SL County-Farmer Showcase Local Urban Farm

Thayne Tagge is my very good friend, neighbor and mentor. Julie is a good friend and my neighbor.  She works for the city of Salt Lake.  Check out the amazing farm in Holladay that Thayne has cultivated from land that was leased to him by Salt Lake County.

 
 
Due to public demand, Salt Lake Countys Urban Farming program is teaming up with local farmeThayne Tagge of Tagges Famous Fruit and Veggies, to showcase a local urban farm.
 
The public is invited to an open house Saturday afternoon for a complete tour. Tagge will share information on how to purchase fresh produce and introduce two innovative farming operations: a solar powered drip irrigation system, which uses only a fraction of the water typically used to grow crops, and the use of black plastic mulch to increase production yields.
 
Other participants include Wasatch Community Gardens and Slow Food Utah. Wasatch Community Gardens and Salt Lake Countys public-private partnership has contributed to the development of community gardens in County parks. Slow Food Utah is an organization that promotes the buy local” movement, small independent farms, and local producers and retailers.
