The Center for Agricultural Profitability at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will present Returning to the Farm, a workshop series for families who are in the transition process of bringing members back to the farm or ranch. It will begin with a two-day workshop in York for multi-generational families on Dec. 9 and 10 at the Holthus Convention Center, 3130 Holen Ave.  

 The series assists families and agricultural operations with developing financial plans and successful working arrangements to meet their unique needs. It will guide families in developing estate and transition plans, setting personal and professional goals and improving the communication process between family members. 

The 2023 Special Garden Project is focused on the Mrs. Burns' Lemon Basil.  This herb can be used multiple ways. Lemon basil has a unique lemon flavor and can be added to any recipe or to cut flower arrangements to add scent and interest.
