The Winter Gardening Fair is a fundraiser for the Linn County Master Gardener Volunteer Program. All proceeds from this event help to fund Master Gardener volunteer projects around our community. Some of these projects include community gardens, demonstration gardens, and educational classes for both adults and youth. As a program of ISU Extension and Outreach, Linn County Master Gardeners are volunteers, trained to share the research of the university with all Iowans.
