Dubuque County Extension Offers Free Onion Plant Program

The Dubuque County Extension Office is offering a Free Onion Plant Program in collaboration with local Dubuque County libraries and non-profits.  The goal of the program is to help educate residents of Dubuque County on how to grow a food crop to increase local food security.  Program participants will receive a 50 – 75 count bag of onion transplants. In addition, participants will receive free updates on how to grow their onion crop to harvest for the 2023 season.

Registration is required by March 31, 2023 and can be done by visiting or calling the Dubuque County Extension Office at (563) 583-6496. During registration participants will need to choose a location that they can pick up their free onion plants starting on April 12, 2023.
