The Dorothy Patach Environmental Area, located at 20th and N Street, has seen many changes over the years, from a lot that collected trash to a lot that community made green again. In 2015, community activists gathered together to change part of the 7-acre area from a dumping site to a garden and community destination. With support from community organizations including the University of Nebraska Medical Center – College of Public Health, the Latino Center of the Midlands, Omaha South High School, One World Community Health Center, South Omaha Boys and Girls Club, South Omaha Neighborhood Alliance (SONA), and community volunteers, City Sprouts South was formed. City Sprouts South seeks to provide a hub for the community to grow together, and create a space that supports a healthier Omaha!

Community Garden

City Sprouts South is located at 1815 N St, and was founded by volunteers from South Omaha Neighborhood Alliance (SONA) with the goal of providing healthy and nutritious food for communities. Our community garden provides neighbors with access to healthy soil, water, seeds, transplants, plenty of sunlight, advice, and support. 


Huerto comunitario

City Sprouts South está localizado en el No. 1815 de la calle N, y fue fundado por voluntarios de SONA con el objetivo de proporcionar alimentos saludables y nutritivos para las comunidades. Nuestro huerto comunitario proporciona a los vecinos  acceso a suelo sano, agua, semillas, trasplantes, mucha luz solar, consejos y apoyo.

crazy gringa hot sauce partnership

During the fall of 2015, a partnership was born between Crazy Gringa Hot Sauce (CGHS) and City Sprouts. Over coffee, the leaders of both organizations envisioned a collaboration that would provide customers with not only a deliciously spicy sauce, but one made with hyper-local ingredients. CGHS selected a variety of peppers and City Sprouts grew them from seed to fruit at our City Sprouts South (CSS) garden. By providing relevance and revenue for our CSS Urban Farming Internship and high quality ingredients and community engagement for CGHS, the partnership has proven to be mutually beneficial. This collaboration serves as a viable model for urban food production, processing, and sales. We hope to inspire more businesses to adopt this model as a strategy to strengthening the local food economy.
