Iowa's Economic Gardening Program
Economic Gardening is an innovative economic growth strategy that focuses on providing information and tools to grow existing businesses. Economic Gardening is often referred to as a “grow your own” strategy for economic development. It represents a new way of supporting growth companies and letting Iowa business owners know how important they are to their local economies. Advance Iowa
partners with economic development organizations across the state to identify and recruit second state firms to work with. All Advance Iowa clients are required to apply for the program in partnership with their local economic developer.
