WINE AND CHEESE BENEFIT
Crossroads Urban Center does many things for many people. Generally, they fight poverty. They work against hunger, run a food pantry and a thrift store and act as a major community resource. So it might be time for you to give back to them—oh, and enjoy a little wine and cheese to celebrate their 50th anniversary. The 14th annual wine-and-cheese party, catered by Tony Caputo's Market & Deli, promises an afternoon of music and bidding on opportunity baskets. The Bayou, 645 S. State, 801-364-7765, Sunday, Sept. 18, 1-4 p.m., $45/advance, $50/door, table of 6/$250, CrossroadsUrbanCenter.org

ECOGARDEN STEWARDSHIP EVENT
Urban living might remind you of heat and cement, but the EcoGarden offers a restful taste of nature along the Jordan River in Rose Park. This community resource demonstrates how trees in urban landscapes can be used for gardening, food and to benefit social and natural environments. Join TreeUtah at its Ecogarden Stewardship event to clean up this beautiful garden and learn about fall fruit tree identification while giving back to the community. Day-Riverside Library, 1575 W. 1000 North, 801-364-2122, Wednesday, Sept. 21, 5-7:30 p.m., free, registration required, Planting@treeutah.org

LOCAL FOOD AND ART SHOW
Wasatch Cooperative Market's third annual Local Food and Art Show offers dishes prepared by local chefs who incorporate products grown by local farms that use sustainable practices. The event is in conjunction with Utah Eat Local Week—a statewide program that celebrates the regional harvest season by promoting local agriculture and food artisans, honoring the preservation of Utah's agricultural heritage, and empowering the community to make conscious food choices. Sugarmont Plaza, 2234 S. Highland Drive, 385-355-5271, Friday, Sept. 16, 6-10 p.m., $10/members, $20 non-members, registration required, Wasatch.coop
