Grow Food with Us

Anyone Can Volunteer and Learn
Everyone is welcome to attend our Garden Volunteer Times. Learn to grow food, give your time, and share in the harvest. No garden experience is necessary as we will have the experienced volunteers helping to direct activity.

Garden Volunteer and Learn times 2021: Thursday 4:30-6:30 PM

*Please check back for 2022 Open Garden Volunteer & Learn opportunities

Come once or garden with us all season! All ages are welcome.
(In the case of extreme weather, garden volunteer time will be cancelled). Please check our Facebook page for cancellations or call 319-626-2711.

Activities will vary depending on the day, but will include activities such as planting, weeding, watering, and harvesting, organic pest control, and composting. Please bring a water bottle and wear gardening clothes you can get dirty–we have all the other tools and equipment.

Want to bring a group of volunteers?
We are limiting volunteer groups at this time due to Covid-19, but will consider groups case by case. Please email with any questions.
