This garden trip is featuring Mennonite greenhouses located by Ionia, Alta Vista and Charles City, IA and included is a family style meal at E & E Confections for lunch.

Muffins & water will be served for a morning snack on our way to Cedar Falls for a restroom break at McDonalds. Our first greenhouse is KR Greenhouse and is known for their hanging baskets (over 3,000), succulents, tropical plants, garden art, geraniums with 5 buildings to shop in. We then travel two miles to Hoover’s Greenhouse which offer garden art, unusual plants in garden pots, succulent wreaths and bathrooms! Lunch will be ready for our group served family style with fried chicken, meat balls, cheesy shredded potatoes, BBQ green beans, rolls, salad, 3 pie selections & ice cream with drink – be sure to bring along your appetite!

Our coach will take us a couple miles down the road to Oak Grove Greenhouse that offer a variety of planters made up with beautiful plants and offers unique type planters (baskets, pans etc). Our last stop before heading back to Newton will be at Pine Hill Greenhouse which offer flowering shrubs, trees, succulents and a wide variety of plants. A quick stop at McDonalds for an evening meal & rest room stop before arriving back to Newton to unload our plants!

Just a reminder that a truck & trailer will be accompanying our group to house your purchases (not responsible for loss of plants or breakage of items purchased.)  Each item must be labeled with a return address label for verification when unloading the trailer – so bring plenty of labels!
