Given Gardens

Given Gardens is a small (5 acre), certified organic CSA and market garden located just 7 miles outside of Decorah, Iowa managed by Nathan and Sarah Wicks. For the 2011 season we will be attending the Decorah Farmers Market and the Downtown Cedar Rapids Market. We are also introducing a 40-member CSA program for 18 weeks from June-October. We focus on speciality and heirloom vegetables and greens, fresh herbs, and fresh and dried cut flowers.

Given Gardens was created in 2010 after two years of internships in southern California and southeast Minnesota. We are also graduates of the Farm Beginnings course, offered through the Land Stewardship Project of Minnesota. Combined, we offer 6 years of farming experience and are very excited to be establishing ourselves in Northeast Iowa. If interested, please contact Sarah Wicks at 563-382-3216.

these are the farmers for you. It is refreshing to engage in meaningful conversations with the local growers in the area, and I certainly have appreciated getting to know both Sarah and Nathan Wicks better through conversations at the Winneshiek Farmers Market.... [more]
