Spring is quickly approaching, which means it is time to get your garden and/or yard ready for the growing season! The Grimes Public Library along with the Parks Department hosts a community garden each year just south of St. Peters Lutheran Church on James Street.


Contact the library, 986-3551 or heid@grimes.lib.ia.us, to reserve your garden plot!


The library also hosts monthly gardening classes with our Master Gardener, Mamta. Join us for our special March and April classes: Composting 101 on March 24 and Rain Barrel Workshops on March 31 and April 14! Find more information about our community garden and gardening programs at our website, grimes.lib.ia.us.
