Plant the Seed is a not-for-profit program that creates outdoor classrooms in community and school gardens to educate and empower under-resourced young people.

Our outdoor classrooms help to build cultural connections, advance economic justice and improve the overall health and well-being of the community we serve. We envision a food-secure Nashville, where young people, in particular, have regular access to fresh, local, culturally-relevant foods. Learn more ›
