Greenhouse open house

An annual treat in Cedar Rapids will offer an escape from our dreary weather. The Noelridge greenhouses will be open to the public during Easter weekend,  from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both Saturday, March 22 and Sunday, March 23.

A group called Friends of Noelridge Park, Greenhouses and Gardens, sponsored by Good Earth Garden Club, has been lending a hand at the greenhouses, in northeast Cedar Rapids.  Volunteer Coordinator Cheryl Hoech said she hopes the group keeps growing.

She had this to say: “Our motto is ‘Community growing together.’ We can always use more volunteers. Among our hopes and dreams are: build a wedding gazebo by the flower gardens; build a shade structure; plant a hosta garden; build and plant a rain garden.”

The group plans to continue supporting greenhouse staff with routine work at Noelridge and 11 other properties the staff maintains. Cheryl said tree branches in city parks need to be picked up before other maintenance can be done, a possibility for a citywide park cleanup event. Volunteers also get hungry, so people who can bring treats to them are also welcome.
