Annual Harvest Campaign

As we wrap up another successful season in the gardens and at the farm, we look forward to next year’s work. Your support at this time of year helps us do the important work in our community. Our goal is to raise $10,000 in 10 weeks to start 2018 off on the right foot. See the video below for an overview of our impact in Lincoln.

Thank you to week 7 Harvest Campaign sponsor, Screen Ink.! Their support allows to work with great partners, like Live Yes Studios, a local non-profit employing local artists and musicians to teach classes and lessons that allow our students to express themselves in an environment free of judgment.

Live Yes! participant, Kelli B. had this to say about gardening with Community Crops:
"Thank you Community Crops for everything that you've done for us. WE'll be able to grow more produce for cooking class and other things. Also, I can do more in the garden with the tools that you gave us. I'm unable to bend down because, I'm in a wheelchair. Gardening has helped us grow as people, we'll do it as long as you'll let us. Thank you again."

French Macaron Class
Tuesday December 5th 6:30pm-8:30pm

Colorful, pillowy, and delicately flavored, macarons are perhaps one of the most famous and treasured French desserts.
Even though the French take credit for the macaron, Catherine de’ Medici likely brought the maccherone to France in the 16th century from Italy, where it had been produced in Venetian monasteries since the 8th century. Back then, they were rather humbly called ‘priest’s bellybuttons,’ due to the pastry’s shape.
