Create healthy gardens that buzz with life.

Join Backyard Abundance and the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department at the North Market Square Party in the Park to learn how to attract birds and butterflies to your yard with natural plantings of fruits and flowers.

The event is free and everyone is welcome.

Experts will be on hand to teach how to plan and plant a successful vegetable garden.
