The garden starter services are free of charge to anyone in Black hawk County regardless of income or other circumstances. 


Donations are appreciated but are not required or expected from participating gardeners; donations help us recover some of our costs  (gas, tiller repair, student assistants, plant starts and seeds). 

If you are interested in becoming an ongoing partner or making non-monetary donations, please contact


To make a donation via check, you may either give it to us in person, drop it off at our office, or mail it.
