GROW Nashville

Supports community gardens by creating a network of people who work together to grow food in Nashville. Provides resources to develop new and existing community gardens around the city. Helps gardeners and neighbors to get outside, share their skills, and grow their own vegetables.

How to Get Involved
Come out to one of the gardens and volunteer for a day! You’ll gain some gardening experience, get some local vegetables, and meet some of your neighbors. Organize a work day for a youth group, your church, co-workers, or any other group you belong to. Next time you clean out your garage, donate some used gardening tools to one of the community gardens.

What is a Community Garden?
A community garden is a space where neighbors work outside together to grow healthy food. Gardens provide a place for neighbors to build relationships with each other, beautify their city, grow nutritious food, conserve resources, and create opportunities for recreation and education.
