Event Type

Our garden trip is featuring Mennonite greenhouses located by Ionia, Elma & Riceville, IA and included is a family style meal at E & E Confections for lunch. (LIMIT OF 25 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  bathrooms!). We then travel a few miles to Windy Ridge Greenhouse (first visit last year) where they are known for their begonias, calla lilies & trellis vegetables.  Lunch will be ready for our group served family style with brisket, sliced ham, cheesy shredded potatoes, barbeque green beans, homemade noodles, pickled beets, potato salad, rolls, 3 pie selections with drink – be sure to bring along your appetite!


Our coach will take us a couple miles down the road to Acme Greenhouse (new to our itinerary for this year) that offers a variety of hydrangeas, perennials and bedding vegetables!


A quick stop for a restroom & evening snack 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! Seriously, bring lots of labels!!!
