Come tour the ISU Research Farm Demonstration Garden.
The annual field days will take place at five Iowa State research and demonstration farms and two county fairgrounds in July and August. The public is welcome to attend these free field days, which take place rain or shine.
“The theme for this year is planting the rainbow, with vegetables planted to be donated to nearby food pantries ranging in colors like pink tomatoes, purple snap beans, yellow cauliflower and orange winter squash,” said Cindy Haynes, a horticulture associate professor who coordinates the field days.
