Project GREEN is once again planning an “open gardens” event this year.  Anyone who enjoys their garden and wants to share it with the community can participate!

Admission will be free for visitors encouraging many more to experience private gardens throughout Iowa City and Coralville, whether a tiny plant-filled patio or an intricately landscaped yard.

Project GREEN's Open Gardens Weekend is scheduled for July 10-11, 2021. Saturday hours are 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday hours will be 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Please consider participating in this popular event by following these easy steps:

  • Sign up online at or call 319-430-6649 to request a mailed application 
  • Pick up a free yard sign before the event
  • Place the yard sign in front of your garden and enjoy chatting with visitors.

Register online at by Sunday, June 20.
