Resources for Gardeners
This page serves as a directory of both local and general gardening information and resources.
If you are a beginning gardener, A Garden in Every Lot will directly provide tilling services, plants and seeds, and consultation. These resources may be especially helpful for second-year gardeners who received assistance from A Garden in Every Lot previously, as well as gardeners who do not qualify for our services.
Please review this document from ISU Extension for more details about when to plant and harvest certain vegetables.
