“Agriculture and the ability to feed oneself comprises the fundamental component of sustaining human life on earth, providing nutrition (and therefore, existence), stability and security”.
Nashville Urban Harvest

Saturday, April 11 was a productive day at The West Nashville Community Farm. Several types of edible leafy greens and lettuce were transplanted into the garden’s fertile soil and in the plot’s recently tilled back half, new rows were prepared for sowing and then measured out. Later in the day volunteers dug trenches between the new rows to increase the the garden’s cultivation and growing space and to ultimately ensure the farm a more bountiful harvest.
