Lancaster County 4-H Council is one of the nonprofits the community can give to during “Give to Lincoln Day” on May 26, coordinated by Lincoln Community Foundation. Your donation is made bigger by a proportional share of a $500,000 challenge match fund! Online donations between now and May 26 count toward the event. For more information or to make a tax-deductible donation, go to http://go.unl.edu/giveto4hcouncil.
4-H Clover College is four days of in-person, “hands-on” workshops. It will be held June 21–24 at the Nebraska Extension in Lancaster County conference rooms, 444 Cherrycreek Road, Suite A, Lincoln. Youth must be currently at least 6 years old (as of June 21) to attend. Need not be enrolled in 4-H. Check for current workshop availability and register online!
Extension Educator Sarah Browning writes in her weekly blog, "Starting a compost pile can be as simple as piling yard waste up in a free-standing pile. But to save space in smaller landscapes, hasten decomposition and keep the yard looking neat, create a composting structure." Read more at Acreage Life - Nebraska.
Extension Educator Alyssa Havlovic says, "Eggs are an inexpensive and nutritious protein food. Try this simple recipe for a nutrient-dense meal." See recipe in the NEBLINE e-newsletter.
