Land Trust for Tennessee, Glen Levenhttp://www.landtrusttn.org/glen-leven
The Land Trust for Tennessee’s Glen Leven Farm is a working landscape with historic and natural roots running deep into Nashville’s history and timeline, and includes a sampling of rich resources. This private property includes a honeybee sanctuary, an education garden, an heirloom garden planted and maintained by Double H Farms - The Hermitage Hotel’s Sustainable Farming Project, hops tee-pees planted by Jackalope Brewery, an arboretum with the largest mass of American Yellowwood in the United States, and a vital relationship with The MTSU Center for Historic Preservation. This urban farm brings the community together. Sculptor Alan LeQuire is the volunteer bush-hogger on the property and George Clements heads up a team of craftspeople working on the stabilization of the 1857 home. Scores of "farmhands" (businesses and volunteers) lend a hand to keep this gem vibrant. The Land Trust for Tennessee is committed to protecting Glen Leven Farm as one of the city’s most treasured natural and historic landscapes… forever.
