Meals 4 Health and Healing Giving Garden

The Giving Garden is critical to our mission and not only serves as a vital source for fresh herbs and vegetables, but we use it to educate teens and adults about whole foods and the importance of organic vegetables. The Teen Summer Camp program involves garden time for nutrition education and enrichment. During the school year, adult and teen volunteers help the gardener maintain the space and tend the garden.

The Giving Garden is supported through generous grants from The Herb Society of Nashville and Slow Food of Middle Tennessee.
