The Greens to Go program serves underserved neighborhoods in the 4th Ward of Waterloo and surrounding areas by increasing access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Weekly outreach efforts consist of mobile produce stands, home delivery, contactless curbside pickup, and online ordering service options. All fruits and vegetables are grown and sourced from our network of farmers located in both rural and urban areas.

We Arose Gardens encompass both area community gardens and the We Arose Demonstration Farm. This farm is a quarter-acre, no-till plot in Waterloo’s Fourth Ward, where community members gather to grow food that will nourish the community and their families. Volunteers will learn how to prepare garden beds, establish walkways, set up irrigation and deal with weed management so they can ultimately produce high-quality greens.
