On Nashville Public Television's Volunteer Gardener, we visit a place to relax, to gather, to grow. That's what these Sumner County Master Gardeners create and cultivate in this courtyard space for a grateful retirement community. Plus, did you know interior-scaping is a thing? We'll take a look at some trendy houseplants. Then we check out the Nashville Public Library Seed Exchange.
