Community Gardens

communitygardensDes Moines Parks and Recreation manages three community gardens. We understand the value and need for citizens to grow and harvest their own produce and encourage gardeners of all backgrounds and skill levels to come garden with us!  Being a part of a community garden means embracing your community! Each plot is dynamic and every gardener grows differently. We encourage you to meet your neighbors, trade produce and learn from each other. Plot rentals are $25 per plot.
