Community Crops serves a wide audience in the Lincoln community including local gardeners, farmers, refugees and low-income families. Our main sponsorship opportunities are garden sponsors, business sponsors, and event sponsors.

Your support will:

  • Provide space and education for community members to grow healthy food of all ages, race, and income levels
  • Help youth learn about gardening and cooking with fresh vegetables
  • Create new business opportunities for beginning farmers
  • Build a stronger Lincoln community
