July 2020 Newsletter

The Garden Collective is a new welcome park and community garden located at 300 East and 100 North in Price, Utah. The ribbon cutting was held on June 30, 2020. The Garden Collective is a welcome new addition to Price City. For many years this property was an eyesore that collected weeds. A very special thanks is given to a collaborative effort between USU-Eastern, Price City, Utah Power Credit Union, SEUALG, Ivory Homes and TreeUtah to get this project completed.

It is anticipated that the Garden Collective will hold concerts, events and be a beautiful social gathering spot within Price City.
