Our production gardens are vibrant growing spaces that supply over 25,000 servings of organic fruits and vegetables for our meal programs each year. TNFP meals are shared through partnerships with over 30 local non-profits and community groups, ensuring food from the local soil reaches the bellies of local people.
The gardens are home to a variety of vegetables, perennial fruit trees and bushes, herbs, and an abundance of flowers for pollinators and humans alike. Volunteers support all aspects of growing, including turning the ground, planting seeds, weeding and harvesting fresh produce. The production gardens also serve as demonstration sites where volunteers, staff and other visitors can share their knowledge about growing, cooking and enjoying food.
Wedgewood urban garden
Our Wedgewood Urban Garden (WUG) is an urban oasis, located in a neighborhood near the Tennessee State Fairgrounds. With the help of many volunteers, The Nashville Food Project grows seasonal annual crops such as corn, cabbage, winter and summer squash, beets, cucumbers and kale on the land to help support our programs. The garden is also home to two community gardens that you can learn more about here.
