Project GREEN was organized in 1968 with the goal of enhancing and beautifying green spaces, parks, major entryways, roadsides, riverfronts, and median parkways on state, county, and city properties within the boundaries of Iowa City, and including all public school grounds within the Iowa City Community School District. Project GREEN also supports Johnson County's efforts to educate its citizens about native prairie restoration and offers assistance in reestablishing areas of native Iowa prairie.

Project GREEN is an all volunteer organization, and volunteers are our most vital commodity! Please consider the GREEN Garden Fair, the GREEN Garden Tour, or a Garden Forum as your volunteer activity. Gardening skills are not necessary; we also have need for clerical, administrative and technology assistance. Please see the Volunteers page for more information.
