Ribbon Cutting at Prairie Pines

Tuesday, May 14, 2013, 2:00 - 3:00 PM

Community CROPS has outgrown its old farm and has moved to a new location. We want you to come celebrate the opening with us!

RSVP for the ribbon cutting here.

Why move?

Community CROPS is moving to Prairie Pines for three reasons.

First, we simply need more space. Prairie Pines will give us the same amount of space as Sunset Community Farm, but as we convert more hay fields to veggies, we will be able to triple our current production capacity.

Second, the collaborative possibilities are enormous at Prairie Pines. The University's desire to improve its outreach in the community, as well as its wealth of research and information will be a boom to our program and theirs.

Third, the timing is perfect. Lincoln continues to turn prime agricultural land into housing and retail developments. It is estimated that the area around Prairie Pines will be developed in the next ten to fifteen years. Prairie Pines will be a green oasis in the middle of the construction, and we hope that our example will be an inspiration to developers, home-buyers, and contractors to pursue green design as Lincoln grows eastward.

Where is Prairie Pines?

Prairie Pines is located on 112th and Adams St., just east of Lincoln, Nebraska. Signs will be posted to guide you to the entrance. Many photo and video opportunities will be available.

Please come join us celebrate the opening of Prairie Pines on May 14, 2:00 PM.
