Help Build A Food Forest in Lincoln

  • Meadowlark Coffee & Espresso 1624 South Street Lincoln, Nebraska, 68502 (map)

Proceeds to go to support an exciting project on the south side of Lincoln, the Southern Heights Food Forest. As a collaborative effort between Community C.R.O.P.S., Nature Explore, and Southern Heights Presbyterian Church, the goal of the Southern Heights Food Forest is to develop a publicly accessible space focused on food production and outdoor education that inspires, welcomes and transforms the Lincoln community.

The “Southern Heights Food Forest” will include a variety of elements that will change the way we eat, play and interact as a community. The 2-acre space will include Nebraska’s first “Food Forest”, a Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom, Urban Agriculture plots, and an expansion of the existing community gardening plots on site. By creating a dynamic space that is based around the value of food and the outdoors, we hope to establish a catalyst for grassroots community development – where children can play safely, where we learn about the value and possibilities of food, and most importantly where meaningful, lifelong relationships are built within the Lincoln community.

“He has told you, human one, what is good and what the Lord requires from you: to do justice, embrace faithful love, and walk humbly with your God.” — Micah 6:8 CEB
