Program Manager

Rhonda Freeman

Rhonda grew up in Florissant, MO with gardening parents and grandparents. Because of their passion for independence she has always believed everyone should know where their food comes from and how to grow it. Her commitment to urban agriculture in Omaha has included volunteering with City Sprouts, building a backyard chicken coop and converting her empty lot into a neighborhood vegetable garden.
In 2014, she refocused her priorities to the Omaha community by working with Omaha Public Schools, Partnership4Kids and Boys & Girls Clubs of the Midlands. As the Program Coordinator, she is committed to supporting the success of Big Muddy’s residential farmers, farm tours and youth garden.
