Second Sunday Garden Forum

Project GREEN is a group of dedicated volunteers who support preservation and beautification of public green spaces in our community, and promote education for our residents and businesses to beautify their own spaces. For over 25 years, Project GREEN and the Iowa City Public Library have joined together to bring the Second Sunday Garden Forums to gardeners of eastern Iowa each winter. Held on the 2nd Sunday in January, February, and March, each forum will have a local or regional garden expert speaking on a gardening topic.
