Located on the Jordan River trail in Fairpark, the Og-Woi People’s Orchard and Garden is a community collective experiment into whether food can be free, according to the organizers. The word “og-woi” is the Shoshone word for river, chosen because the project is located near the Jordan River on land that was stolen from the Ute and Shoshone tribes. Fruit trees, berry bushes, flowers, as well as garden beds of veggies are being planted and cared for by volunteers. In addition to providing nourishment to the body, these “guerilla gardeners” are also nourishing the environment and the community by modeling resiliency and caring. You can learn more at the Og-Woi Facebook group. Photos courtesy of the Og-Woi Collective
