Feed Iowa First helps improve the land and the growing environment for our urban farms and farmers through a variety of projects and activities.

Making Raised Growing Beds

Among our recent activities, we created raised beds for the urban farm that supports the Horizons Meals on Wheels program. Our volunteers and urban farmers removed the existing beds and replaced them with eight larger beds—each of which will produce at least 120 pounds of asparagus.

This project was made possible with help from:

  • The Mission Continues
  • King’s Material
  • Frank’s Tree Service
  • Rain Bird Irrigation
  • Horizons Meals on Wheels
  • AmeriCorps
  • Earl May Nursery & Garden Center
