True Friends

 

Meet Charlie and Saba, two of the 300 gardeners in our community garden program. Two years ago, they were strangers, separated by language and cultural barriers. Today they are True Friends! Charlie is a retired farmer from Kearney; Sabah an Iraqi refugee, with a lifetime of working the farm fields in his home country. However unlikely, their friendship has blossomed at the Oak Lake Church community garden.

Building community is just one of the many ways that Community Crops impacts Lincoln. Will you give today to support our work? Give to Lincoln Day is May 18th, but you can donate online now until 11:59 pm on the 18th. Please consider a donation to Community crops so that more friendships can be formed right here in Lincoln!

If you want to beat the heat, come check out The Community Crops Veggie Van this Thursday, July 13th, from 3-6 pm at the Health 360 Clinic (2301 O Street)! As always, our friends from the UNL Nutrition Education Program will be on hand with some tasty samples and great info for how to get the most flavor out of your veggies! This week, we're featuring an array of summer squash from Fox Run Farms as well as other summer favorites such as farm fresh eggs, carrots, beets and potatoes. We love these young squash sautéed in butter with some garlic. Some people like to cut them up into sticks, perfect for dipping or cut them in half and roast them on the grill! What's your favorite way to cook summer squash?
