Manager at Community CROPS. A native of Lincoln, he has spent the past decade traveling in the United States and abroad, and pursuing graduate degrees in anthropology along the way. Most recently, Ben spent two years living in Detroit, where he and his wife Patrice participated in the city’s vast urban agriculture movement. They returned home to Lincoln to raise their daughter, Polly, and to be close to family. When he’s not helping Lincolnites learn to garden, Ben enjoys camping, commuting on bikes, cooking and well-crafted beer.
