Community CROPS (http://www.communitycrops.org) helps people work together to grow healthy food and live sustainably. A broad network of community gardens all across Lincoln lets local families grow their own food, gardening classes teach a range of growing skills, and the Growing Farmers Training Program gives new farmers the training and help they need to succeed.
Registration for new garden plots is available beginning in February each year. Sign up for a location near your home and start growing your own food--all tools and water are provided. Gardens are open to everyone on a sliding-scale fee basis. http://www.communitycrops.org/gardens
Community CROPS CSA
Let Community CROPS grow your vegetables! The CSA lets you buy a share in the harvest from our beginning farmers. You'll get a box of fresh vegetables every week during the growing season and they get their business started. http://www.communitycrops.org/csa
Growing Farmers Training Program
Registration begins in the fall for new farmers. A full training course is held each winter on the basics of running a business, growing vegetables in Nebraska and marketing. http://www.communitycrops.org/farm
