The HomeShowExpo, hosted annually by the Home Builders Association of Greater Des Moines, presents attendees with a unique opportunity to peer inside and appreciate the style, craftsmanship and amenities of new custom-built homes constructed by local builders in attractive Central Iowa neighborhoods.
We are excited to announce that we will be in the Agrihood community of Great Western Crossing located in the town of Cumming. The 2021 HomeShowExpo will show the public the diversity that our members can offer to builders and their clients.
A growing movement of communities being built around working farms and community gardens is taking root across the country. An agrihood is being defined as a single family, multifamily, or mixed-use community centered around working farms. They are a tool for a building community, nourishing people with healthy food, and teaching people about agriculture. Dozens of new agrihoods are sprouting up every year creating a growing demand for people seeking to live in communities focused on healthy sustainable living. Middlebrook Farms in Cumming, Iowa seeks to join this movement by creating an agrihood that honors the agricultural legacy of the state and region, while building a vibrant neighborhood that nourishes community through healthy food and farming.
