Muscatine Community Gardens

What is a Community Garden
A Community Garden is an area of land that is made available to members of a community to grow vegetables. Plots of land are leased to the gardeners for a small seasonal fee. These gardens also contribute to a more livable environment and promote a more positive community image.
