If you’ve ever dreamed of creating a community garden in your neighborhood, with your neighbors, religious or civic organization the spring of 2015 is your chance to make your dreams come true. Neighborhood groups, religious communities, service organizations and nonprofits are encouraged to apply for a garden either on their own property or in a city public park. Winning applicants will be given a three-year lease or sign an agreement with Waterloo or Cedar Falls to have land of their choice tilled annually. Black Hawk County Extension and Outreach office will offer classes and support for the garden managers to get the gardens off on the right foot. The application can be found and downloaded from the link provided here, http://www.extension.iastate.edu/blackhawk/news/cedar-valley-grows. To learn more about the application process, informational meetings are scheduled on Thursday, February 12 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Cedar Falls Rec Center, 110 E 13th St, Cedar Falls; or on Friday, February 13 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Waterloo SportsPlex, 300 Jefferson St., Waterloo. The information presented at both meetings will be the same and will cover the applications for both cities.
