New garden invites community to exchange unused books and produce
OMAHA, Neb. (FOX42KPTM) —
It was a day of giving and taking in Omaha, and it's all thanks to one little library and pantry.
City Sprouts opened its special location Wednesday.
The community garden is located in the Orchard Hill part of the city.
People were able to drop off any unused books and take a book or two from the collection as well.
The same went for the produce.
"I think that it just helps to build our community and share our enthusiasm for growing,” said Roxanne Draper, executive director of City Sprouts. “Growing food, growing individuals and growing community."
City Sprouts also has a fundraiser for its internship program next month.
It takes place at Metropolitan Community College on Aug. 20 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
