Join us in supporting a community garden that empowers Nashville residents to feed themselves! Farm to Families volunteers at Farm in the City help maintain the garden so that neighborhood residents can grow healthy food for their families year-round. In times of abundance, excess produce grown in the garden is donated to those in need. Volunteers are exposed to all aspects of gardening and learn techniques they can implement in their own home gardens.

Projects vary and may include: weeding, mulching, composting, harvesting, or gleaning. Volunteers will receive specific task assignments at the beginning of each shift. Green thumbs not required! We’ll teach you everything you need to know.
