Malinda Hersh, Associate Director


Growing up on a farm in the small rural town of Red Boiling Springs, TN, Malinda experienced organic gardening before she knew the term for it. After graduating from Middle TN State University with a degree in Communications, she spent 18 years working for radio stations and ad agencies in Nashville and Los Angeles. A career transition led her to work in youth leadership and nonprofit program management, including seven years with Hands On Nashville. Malinda now finds herself returning to her organic roots, providing food that nourishes both body and soul. Malinda and her family live in west Nashville, where she enjoys hiking with her rescue dog, Faith, along Warner Park trails.
