Wyoming Food for Thought Project offers a variety of different garden types at our Urban Farm, and throughout the Casper community. Many of our gardens are a part of a Food is Free Project, where we simply plant gardens and people can pick the produce from them for free, no questions asked. The other garden type is a community garden space where people can rent a garden plot from us for just $10 a summer. Both of these garden types are great contributors to our community, in that they provide anyone, regardless of their socioeconomic status, with healthy, locally grown produce. People who rent a bed get the firsthand experience of watching their food grow from seed, and gain a sense of self-sustainability.

Wyoming Food for Thought Project currently manages three Food is Free garden areas in Casper. According to the Food is Free Project website, "The Food is Free Project grows community and food, while helping gain independence from a broken agricultural system."
