Want to help out at the Food Forest, but aren’t sure how to get started? We have plenty of upcoming volunteer days with tasks for all skill levels. You’ll meet a great group of people, learn some ways to grow food, and of course feel like you got something done!
Join us on Saturday, Aug 10, 8am-11am, and Sunday, Aug 25, 6-8pm.
In the Kitchen with Elderberries!
Learn how to make a simple syrup from elderberries and versions of the spiced syrup for fighting colds all winter. As the berries start to ripen, we’ll give you a two week notice for the workshop, so stay tuned.
Bring the kids out for a memorable time at the Southern Heights Food Forest before school starts! We’re always open, and the sheds have plenty of educational toys.
Ever wondered how hazelnuts grow? They’re the easiest and fastest nut to grow, and you can plant your own in Nebraska. We’ll have our first crop soon. Stop by and check it out!
More on growing hazelnuts.
Thank you to everyone who supported the Southern Heights Food Forest on Give to Lincoln Day! We’re growing in every way, thanks to you.
