FD launches Northwest River District community garden

A new community garden is growing this summer at the Hydro-Electric Park.

The Northwest River District community garden is an opportunity for the neighborhood to grow their own flowers, fruits, veggies and herbs. The garden is funded by America’s Best Communities and the Wellmark Foundation.

“We’ve also received help from the Fort Dodge Home Builders and Area Gardeners Club in preparing the garden plots,” said Carissa Harvey, Fort Dodge Business Affairs & Community Growth Senior Planner. “We still have plots available, so would like to get the word out.”

Anyone interested in a plot should call Harvey at 576-8191 or email cHarvey@fortdodgeiowa.org.
