East Campus Discovery Days conclude Aug. 14
The first season of the East Campus Discovery Days and Farmer’s Market concludes with a 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. event on Aug. 14.
Hosted by the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources, the series is more than a regular farmer’s market. It offers hands-on, science-focused experiences from various Nebraska departments, as well as a vendor fair, live music and food trucks. Campus visitors also have the opportunity to tour the Backyard Farmer Garden; arboretum; newly renovated Dairy Store and Dinsdale Family Learning Commons; and Nebraska Hall of Agricultural Achievement interactive digital kiosk.
“This new series of events presents a wonderful opportunity to connect Nebraska’s farmers and producers with our community members to provide access to locally produced, nutritious food,” said Jessie Brophy, director of external engagement for IANR.
Through the market, Nebraska seeks to offer the East Campus community, neighbors and friends access to science literacy opportunities, locally produced fresh food, value-added artisans, on-campus family activities and an avenue for producers to sell their products. The market activities are free and open to the public, while food and crafts will be available for purchase.
The East Campus Discovery Days and Farmer’s Market is supported by the university. For more information on the market, including a full list of vendors, click here. For additional information, contact Brophy at email@example.com or Kirstin Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
