100 Miles of Gardens

Welcome to 100 miles of Gardens! The gardens are non-profit, community-supported gardens initiated by Mississippi Valley Partners, a tourism collation group. The gardens incorporate 14 villages on the Mississippi River.

The objective is to create more green space in each community by adding colorful, interesting gardens. In addition to the public gardens we've created we've asked businesses to dress up their towns using containers, hanging baskets and window box planters.

Over the last decade gardening has become one of the most popular hobbies. The results of this labor-intense activity are now being enjoyed by all. Thus, individuals in each community have been asked to be included in our
garden tour brochure so that the results of their labor may be enjoyed by many.

There is a diverse collection of fragrant perennials, annuls, fruits and vegetables as well as a vineyard and blueberry patch. Other attractions are water ponds; prairie grasses and even a Japanese garden.

Our hope is that visitors will take a day or two to wander through these fourteen villages to view these beautiful gardens. Call 888-999-2619 for our brochure or download from our web site at mississippi-river.org under gardens.
