School Gardens

As part of Nashville's effort to provide more opportunities for good health, Metro Public Health is collaborating with Metro Nashville Public Schools and multiple community organizations to create a district-wide school garden resource system. Recognizing the potential impact a well-organized school garden system contributes to making healthier places, a school garden campaign continues in Nashville. The Nashville school garden network of community leaders, teachers and administrators leads this effort. Join the network on the Nashville School Garden Network Wiki site.
