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 about organic farming.
The three visited student-run organic farms in St. Paul, Minn.; Madison, Wis.; and Ames, Iowa. Martin says they were all different but provided a good base for the Lincoln project.
