Growing on the High Plains: Veggie Walkthrough at Nuke-City Veg
Last summer, while delivering the beloved garden basket to a winner in the Texas Panhandle, I had a chance to visit urban gardener and vegetable enthusiast Danny Melius. He’s both the brains and the brawn behind Nuke-City Veg, a multi-locational urban farm in Amarillo, TX that uses natural practices to grow leafy greens, roots, and vegetables year round.
Nuke-City Veg partners with Square Mile Community Development to farm 6000 sq. ft. in the San Jacinto neighborhood in Amarillo. They are a non-profit working to revitalize the entire neighborhood, and the farm is just one piece of their five overall goals.
