A leap to Des Moines nearly two years ago from Iowa City planted me and my children into an urban apartment. The transition from a home with a garden in the midst of rolling pastures to living downtown in Des Moines was BIG. I’ve wished to have a garden of my own for several months now. Truly, there is nothing more magical than planting a seed, watching it grow, picking vegetables, making nutritious food that feeds my growing children. Things like gardening, children, community … these are all very meaningful too me.
I’m coordinating an urban community garden now, it’s situated on the grounds of Edmund’s Elementary School, in the historical Sherman Hill neighborhood, on the edge of the city of Des Moines. I am proud to serve this school, this community and coordinate the mission that brings gardeners and neighbors together here.
