Outdoor Edible Classroom Fall Equinox Celebration

Celebrate the fall equinox by enjoying the bounty from the Edible Classroom on the south side of the Robert A. Lee Community Recreation Center. 

Fun activities are available for children (and adults) of all ages.

  • Dig potatoes and take them home.
  • Nibble cucumbers, tomatoes and other produce.
  • Get free seeds that will grow butterfly-supportive habitat

The event is in conjunction with Kids Day at the Iowa City Farmers Market:

The Outdoor Edible Classroom helps families, gardeners, farmers and herbalists learn how to grow a wide variety of edibles in ways that increases the health of our local ecosystems.

The educational space is filled with fruits, vegetables and herbs, which are free for harvesting. No synthetic pesticides or herbicides are allowed in the landscape.

This project would not be possible without these sponsors and supporters: 

  • Backyard Abundance
  • Iowa Department of Agriculture
  • New Pioneer Food CoOp
  • ACE Mentor Program
  • Hills Bank
  • Field to Family
  • Hy-Vee
  • Beisser Lumber
