Hands On Nashville Urban Farm

Located on 5-acres in south Nashville, Hands On Nashville’s Urban Farm is a teaching and learning hub for volunteers, students, and community partners.

The Farm serves as a vibrant resource for volunteers to grow gardening skills, learn about healthy eating choices and gain an understanding of food access in our community. A portion of produce harvested from the Farm is donated to nonprofit partners addressing food access issues, including The Nashville Food Project.

Volunteer Opportunities at the Farm:

Hands On Nashville engages volunteers to cultivate and maintain the Farm year-round, hosting 100+ volunteer opportunities annually!

History of the Farm: 

The Urban Farm is a public/private partnership spearheaded by Hands On Nashville, The Office of the Mayor, and Metro Nashville Parks and Recreation. Following the May 2010 flood, Metro Government purchased this 5-acre flood tract. Hands On Nashville staff and volunteers transformed the space into what is now a thriving, sustainable community resource and learning space.
