Growing Opportunities are Blooming in Cedar Valley!

Things are blooming in Cedar Valley and the ISU Extension and Outreach Black Hawk County Service is making it happen.   

Today, Justin Roy Edwards joined us to share the agricultural activities in Cedar Valley.  They are creating gardening plots around Waterloo and Cedar Falls for people's enjoyment and for producing food for those who need it.  

As Urban Agricultural Specialist, Justin is busily writing grants and creating gardens so that volunteers can  produce thousands of pounds of produce for the Northeast Iowa Food Bank.

He shared the Master Gardener Online program where interested horticulturalists can learn to Master the Trowel between September 27 - November 15.

Gertrude Jekyll once said, "The love of gardening is a seed once sown that never dies."  We can bet that the love of gardening will never die in the Cedar Valley as long as Justin and his team sow their message.
