About the GardensThe Coralville Community Gardens offer a place for citizens to lease a plot to plant and grow their own fresh produce, herbs, and annual flowers. The gardens also offer a limited number of raised beds for those with mobility impairments. Composed material and top soil is applied over the entire garden area at the beginning of the season.
