Kia Brown, a New York transplant, has lived in Nashville for 11 years. She's had lots of adventures along the way including school at the University of Memphis where she earned her B.S. in Geography and a year serving in AmeriCorps. While traveling the country during her service year, she spent a couple of months in Seattle and discovered her love for growing both food and community.
Kia loves to travel and explore, which led to a summer interning at the Nashville Zoo and an interest in new hobbies such as metalsmithing. You might encounter Kia leading groups in any of our gardens, but she works closely with the Green Thumbers in the McGruder community garden .
