In 2009 we were welcomed into a neighbor’s backyard that sits on the edge of Richland Creek. The shared vision was a new urban garden site that would re-educate our neighborhood on land stewardship, good organic growing techniques and a spiritual reconnection with our homes as a place to supply our table and foster a healthy eco-system.
Over two seasons, we were blessed to build some raised beds and plant some plots with the the St. Ann’s Catholic lower school. Based on the success of that pilot project and other edible education Good Food initiated, we were hired by the Metro Davidson Health Department to support the early efforts of the Bellevue Edible Learning Laboratory at Bellevue Middle School. With our job done at that site, we are excited to move back home to what we once called Cherokee Garden.
Starting September 15th, 2012 — in spaces now renamed the Funny Farm and the Funnier Farm, our Saturday Garden Parties have exploded this season. Everyone is invited to come out. Just bring your sunscreen and high spirits. From 8:30 until 11:30, come play on our micro-farms, meet new people and make a difference.
