We work with Omaha-area residents, volunteers, and interns to grow vegetables, flowers, and herbs using environmentally responsible and sustainable gardening techniques in our community gardens and urban farm.
We develop and conduct educational programs that teach all age groups from toddlers to adults how to garden, cook, preserve, and more.
We work with the community to build local food systems, improve community health, empower neighborhoods, and strengthen economic viability and sustainability.
We provide a comfortable setting where people of diverse ages and backgrounds can learn and grow together.
