Community Crops opens new training farm

Posted: Updated:

Community Crops is all about helping gardeners grow healthy food.  The non-profit group has been such a success here in Lincoln that it's expanding once again. 

Soon the soil of Community Gardens around town will be tilled and seeds will be planted.  The same goes for a brand new piece of land near 112th and Adams.  It's a training farm called Prairie Pines.  The new training farm is a collaborative effort between Community Crops and the University of Nebraska.  Its ribbon cutting ceremony is Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. 

Community Crops started 10 years ago.  Around 700 gardeners work the land at 13 community gardens scattered around the Capital City.
