Two recent graduates are trying to turn a half-acre of University of Nebraska-Lincoln land into a student-run organic farm.
Recent graduates Danny Martin and Jenn Simons are working with environmental studies student Neil Tabor on the East Campus project.
They've got a commitment from UNL for the land and have been raising money to renovate a greenhouse on the site. They hope to start planting late this month or early in April.
Simons says the farm would provide real-world experience for students who have been relying on books and lectures to learn about organic farming.
