Urban Agriculture Program
About the Urban Farm
Much of the Urban Agriculture Program's activity occurs at HON's five-acre Urban Farm in South Nashville, where volunteers are guided by HON's Urban Agriculture Program team. The Farm is a working and teaching hub for volunteers, offering 100+ volunteer opportunities to the community each year. Produce harvested from the Farm is used in our programs to give youth the opportunity to harvest, prepare, and taste healthy foods.
Hands On Nashville’s Urban Farm is a public and private partnership spearheaded by HON, The Office of Mayor Karl Dean, and Metro Nashville Parks and Recreation.

The core focus of programming at the Farm is to engage youth who live in neighborhoods with limited access to fresh foods. Check out the links below to see how we encourage exploration, discovery, and leadership around growing food and making healthy food choices.
