Garden Plots

City of Iowa City community garden plots are located at Wetherby Park, 2400 Taylor Drive and Chadek Green Park, 1920 Friendship Street.

Registration for the garden plots occurs at the Robert A. Lee Community Recreation Center each year on the very first Monday of April, beginning at 7:30 a.m. Call 319-356-5210 for more information.

Registrants will be required to sign a lease agreement to maintain the plot through Oct. 1. Water is available at both parks for registered gardeners; however, no hoses may be attached to the spigots. Water will need to be transported from the spigot to the garden plot by bucket or other means.

Plots will be tilled once at the beginning of the season by the City when weather permits. Gardeners must provide all of their own gardening tools and supplies.
