“Nashville Urban Harvest is a community driven, non-profit group working to build sustainable food systems in Nashville, Tennessee, and surrounding environs. We seek ways to align our core values through public action: education for food justice, creation of markets to support local producers, and production of food on urban green space, all with an eye toward sustainable, local, community-supported agriculture and action”.
On May 20 the growers at the West Nashville Community Farm provided Nashville Urban Harvest CSA holders with their portion of this years first harvest, a basket of garden fresh salad greens. Each basket included two varieties of lettuce, kale and green onions.
The West Nashville Community Farm is located at 1211 56th Avenue North. Anyone interested in learning how to grow food using sustainable agricultural practices is welcome to visit the community farm on Saturday’s between 9:00 am and noon.
