Siouxland Community Garden

​Gardens can give good, fresh food while providing family fun, building community relationships, and creating new businesses. The Siouxland Community Garden Project is growing more than just food - it's bringing people together to cultivate community and opportunity for all.

Growing your own food is empowering! Gardeners have access to healthy and affordable organic produce and have the opportunity to sell their bountiful harvest for extra income.

We’re training potential market gardeners and new farmers. Project activities are open to everyone, with a special focus on Hispanic market gardeners. Traditionally, Hispanic farmers and gardeners have received few resources. Click here to jump to a list of Spanish-language farming and gardening resources.

The South Sioux City Community Garden has two locations:

  • Bryan School, corner of 32nd St and Dakota Ave
  • River Hills Church, Highway 77 Bypass at 6th Ave

The Siouxland Community Garden offers training to gardeners of all skill levels. This includes information on organic practices, presentations from local farmers, small business training, and hands-on training in the garden. Training sessions and garden assistance prepare gardeners to sell their crops at the South Sioux Farmers Market and to other end users, or for eventual commercial-scale farming.

Check out the Siouxland Community Garden on KMEG14 News at Sunrise.

The community garden project is made possible with support from the USDA Farmers Market Promotion Program, Center for Rural Affairs, City of South Sioux City, Club Corazones Alegres, Loess Hills RC&D and Sioux Rivers RC&D.
