Cultivate: A Word From Christie

Friends of Tabitha,

One way or another all Nebraskans are connected through agriculture. After all, one out of four jobs in the state is linked to the industry and if you didn’t grow up on a farm or ranch, chances are you know someone who did. Because of this, it’s safe to say there’s a good understanding about growing something out of nothing.

When you think about it, we spend our lives cultivating—raising families, fostering friendships, furthering our education and building careers, businesses and communities.
