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.

LCK members were up early this morning for the 51st Annual Farm-City Breakfast, hosted by the Waverly Kiwanis.

Our very own Ben McShane-Jewell was the Keynote speaker and gave a great talk about Community Crops and their mission here in Lincoln, both past and present. There are a lot of exciting things to come for urban agriculture!

F Street Greenery Open House with Community Crops

November 19, 2017, 3:00pm - November 19, 2017, 5:00pm

We want to hear what you have to say! If you've heard of the Emerald Ash Borer, you know our trees are in trouble. This invasive species has caused a need to remove and replace a large number of Ash trees along the F Street corridor and we've got the resources to do just that. But first, we want to hear what you have to say. What would you like to see on F Street? Community gardens? More trees? Public art? Let us know at the open house!
