Let's Grow Here Gala

The Let’s Grow Here Gala hosts more than 250 business and community leaders in celebration of Omaha’s urban agriculture developments and achievements while delighting guests with food crafted by three local chefs, hearing inspiring speeches from five Aspiring Farmer Residents, and watching an original short film on local agriculture. By joining in together, we can challenge food insecurity and the barriers facing beginning farmers, helping ensure our local food system provides all community members with a healthy, safe, and vibrant place to live. Join us!
