Out digging hostas for the Garden Fair!
The 2018 Garden Fair was held on Saturday, May 5, 2018, and over $28,000 was raised to support Project GREEN’s beautification projects. Hundreds of volunteers spent hundreds of hours, digging and potting the many wonderful plants that were for sale. Also available were Project GREEN Tshirts and tote bags, bearing the bold poppy design created by local artist Loret Mast, as well as coffee mugs and hats featuring the Project GREEN logo.
Sadly, there will not be a 2019 Garden Fair like those we have had in the past. Our new venture will be to appear bi-weekly on Saturdays at the Iowa City downtown Farmer’s Market. Each time, we will feature different plants, trees or shrubs which have been grown in our experienced gardeners’ own gardens. They will all be choice, hardy plants that will survive Iowa’s weather. Experienced gardeners will also be on hand to answer gardening questions and give advice. And our special Project GREEN TShirts, totebags, hats and mugs will all be available for purchase. Watch our Facebook page for an announcement of the dates Project GREEN will be “At the Market”, and a listing of what plants will be featured.
