Greenhouse to Cafeteria

Greenhouse to Cafeteria award

The Center for Rural Affairs, in collaboration with Nebraska FFA, piloted a program to acknowledge schools for exemplary greenhouse education. Applicants are judged on categories including diversity and quantity of produce grown, water and input management, student involvement, community involvement, and more.

In 2021, Nebraska Christian Schools went above and beyond in all categories, and was chosen as the first Greenhouse to Cafeteria award winner. Read more about Nebraska Christian.

Litchfield Public Schools excelled in these categories, and has been chosen for the Greenhouse to Cafeteria award runner-up. Read more about Litchfield.
