Omasombo Katuka tills the land Thursday for a vegetable garden at Packard-Littlefield Farm in Lisbon. The new Mainer, from the Democratic Republic of Congo, has been working with the Cultivating Community program on about 30 acres of the 500-acre farm for the past 10 years. He has learned new skills and has taught others about farming for themselves, community-supported agriculture and farmers markets, and has learned about marketing through the program.
