Creekside Harmony Educational Garden was designed to provide an interactive space for people to connect with nature and food. We provide education on gardening methods, teaching tools and methods through workshops, camps and classes. We strive to bring information about healthy living through education on local food supplies.
Pictured above are UNI students who were employed at CHG during Summer 2017 along with Jenny Bruss, RRTTC employee.
Events hosted during Summer 2017 include; Continuing Education Teacher Workshop, Growing Young Gardeners Summer Camp, Tours and Tastings, Harvest Festival, and much more!
The garden features a fenced area with a huge array of vegetable varieties, different types of raised beds and trellis systems, a pizza garden, a fairy garden along with rhubarb, and currants bushes. Sunflowers, a pumpkin patch, the herb garden, a rain garden and a wide variety of perennial and annual flowers are featured around the solar panel beds.
