This garden trip is featuring Mennonite greenhouses located by Ionia and Alta Vista, IA and included is a family style meal at E & E Confections for lunch. (LIMIT OF 32 GARDENERS PER TRIP DUE TO TRAILER CAPACITY).
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 (great news – he has added bathrooms!). We then travel two miles to Hoover’s Greenhouse which offers 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, French green beans, rolls, salad, 2 pie selections & ice cream or bread pudding with drink – be sure to bring along your appetite!
Our coach will take us a couple miles down the road to Windy Ridge Greenhouse that offers a variety of wooden planters & tropical 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!
