Our production gardens are vibrant growing spaces that supply over 50,000 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.
Right outside our South Hall Kitchen, on the campus of Woodmont Christian Church, the Woodmont Garden grows the highly nutritious vegetables that make our meals nutrient powerhouses. Here we grow greens of all shapes and sizes, as well as tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, and peas. The full scope of our work is visible at the Woodmont Garden, as a seed goes from the greenhouse, to the ground and finally into a meal that is delivered to one of our partner meal sites.
