A Garden In Every Lot

Renewing our community’s culture of gardening.

We help individuals and community organizations overcome barriers to starting  gardens. Since 2020, over 140 backyard gardens have been installed for community members!
Individuals and families who do not already have a garden are eligible to receive garden site assessment on their property, site preparation, tilling, and free seeds and plant starts. Additional services for community and donation gardens include strategic planning, connections to local volunteers, and ongoing consultation to support their success.

Start Your Garden

A Garden in Every Lot offers residents of Black Hawk County starting a garden, including tilling services, plants starts, and seeds to get your first garden going! 

Currently we are only offering free services to first-time gardeners, but we are happy to offer guidance and connect you with other local gardeners and resources if you already have a garden.
