Gardening at the Iowa Veterans Home

Greenhouse

The greenhouse is located on the main floor of Malloy Building and can be accessed through the stairwell door at the top of the Dack ramp. The area is open daily for residents and visitors who enjoy stopping in to look at plants. If residents want to do some work in the greenhouse, they must contact their unit Recreation Therapist.

Garden Plots

Garden plots are available to any resident who wants to plant and is able to take care of a garden. Recreation Therapy is in charge of allocating plots and having them prepared for planting. Garden boxes are available on a limited basis for gardeners who cannot work in a ground level plot. Residents may buy their own seeds and plants--a shopping trip is usually planned for gardeners--and gardening equipment is available for the gardeners' use. Gardeners may distribute the produce from their gardens as they wish. All gardeners are expected to maintain their plots or boxes and provide the necessary care for the plants.
