Farm in the City 2021

Tammy Algood visits the community garden near downtown Nashville known as Farm in the City. Established in 2010 by Metro Development and Housing Agency, it offers more than 50 raised beds that are open to residents of the J. Henry Hale Apartments as well as the greater community. While this spot didn’t start with good soil, there is a concentrated effort to build good soil which supports a food forest and orchard.
