What does Project GREEN do? Our volunteers:

1

Raise money to…

Project GREEN raises money to make the Iowa City area an even more beautiful place to live and work through:

  • Donations from individuals who value beauty in our public areas
  • Local business sponsorship of our annual Open Gardens Weekend event
  • Grants from local, state and federal community improvement funds

2

Beautify public areas

3

and Educate the public about gardening

  • Project GREEN’s annual Winter Garden Forums at the Iowa City Public Library are highly educational and free to the public
  • The annual Open Gardens Weekend inspires through visiting numerous real gardens, and educates through chatting with friendly, knowledgeable garden hosts — all for free!

Project GREEN has donated $2.2 million to make Johnson County more beautiful!
