Gardens bring tasy food, delightful color, refreshing fragance, rustling leaves, and enervating prickles and tickles.  Sometimes they even tickle the fancy.

This year's calendar captures the sense of playfulness found in many gardens.  Take a whimsical journey through the seasons in photography, verse, and quippy garden quotes.

Makes a great gift and a handy garden journal too!

The Leopold Center has been working on four new videos about the importance of local food -- for Iowa  communities, farmers, young people and our landscape.  The series is called "Why Local? Why Now?"
