IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department and Backyard Abundance have teamed up to host a “Smoothie and Harvest Party.”

The event attendee will help harvest cherries, aronia berries, and culinary herbs while on a site tour, and will also enjoy smoothies and snacks made with fruits harvested from trees and shrubs in the garden. 

The event will be held at Wetherby Park Edible Forest at 2400 Taylor Drive in  Iowa City  on Saturday, Aug. 1.

It will also highlight the installation  of  informational signage that describes specific features of edible plants at the site. Each sign is imprinted with a QR code that can be scanned by a mobile device to learn more about the plant, including recipes.  

The event, which is open to the public, will be held from 9:30 to 11 a.m. There is no fee to participate.
