Welcome to City Sprouts | City Sprouts
We envision a community that is empowered to sustainably grow, eat, provide, and promote healthy, local foods.
We work with Omaha area residents and volunteers to grow vegetables, flowers, and herbs using environmentally responsible and sustainable gardening techniques. We provide a comfortable setting where people of diverse ages and backgrounds can work outside together.
Our larger vision is to work with the community to build local food systems, improve community health, empower neighborhoods, and strengthen economic viability and sustainability. Over the years, City Sprouts has helped establish community and family gardens at various Omaha neighborhoods, such as Gifford Park, Leavenworth, and at churches, community centers, and neighborhoods. In addition to improving food quality and security, neighborhood gardens enhance community identity and pride. According to many studies, recreational gardening confers significant health benefits.
