On this Volunteer Gardener, we celebrate the city’s trees. Matt Kerske follows the Nashville Tree Foundation as they measure up this year’s entries in the big, old tree contest.  Tammy Algood walks the strawberry fields of Kelley’s Berry Farm in Castalian Springs.  Then, we head to Franklin to see how the 100 yard  long wind rows comprised of leaves and grass clippings heat up to become a microbe-rich soil amendment.
