Cedar Valley Grows is a collaboration of community partners working since 2013 towards creating a sustainable network of gardens in Black Hawk County, Iowa. Their goal is to foster community relationships, create sources of healthy food, and produce opportunities for outdoor activity and education. In the last two years CVG has assisted in the creation of four community gardens in the Waterloo/Cedar Falls area in Iowa. This year the gardens collectively harvested 6,155 lbs. of produce.
