Field of Greens Program

Field of Greens is Food For Free's own small farm, hosted by Lindentree Farm, in Lincoln. Each year, farmer Ari Kurtz generously gives us use of a quarter-acre of his land and provides tools, seeds, and invaluable know-how. With hard work from many volunteers, Food For Free grows nutrient-dense vegetables for distribution to pantries, meal programs, and shelters. In 2016, we began to distribute exclusively to the Pine Street Inn. Our partnership has increased the amount of fresh produce Pine Street Inn can provide to its guests and use in its job training programs. In 2017, Field of Greens harvested more than 5,300 pounds of vegetables for distribution to the Pine Street Inn.
