BELL Garden has a Mission…

Edible schoolyards teach gardening skills

Edible schoolyards teach gardening skills to both students and adults in fun way that promotes physical activity and good nutrition!

The BELL Garden exists to cultivate, guide, and encourage shared community values of healthy living and lifelong learning.  We support this mission by providing practical learning opportunities for residents of the community in a setting that promotes physical activity, healthy eating, environmental stewardship, and multi-cultural connections for all generations.

Current initiatives include classroom interaction & hands on lessons in the garden, community events, garden workdays, an after school garden program, and produce tastings. We are committed to sharing our harvest with the entire community, including those in need.

We had an important announcement in our blog that didn't make it to Facebook last week!

We are happy to announce that we have been awarded with the seed award for Slow Food Middle Tennessee's Community Enrichment Grant. The $250 award is going straight into the garden in the form of seed starting mix and greenhouse supplies that will nourish this seasons seedlings! We are so happy to be part of a community that is so supportive of our efforts and changing the whole Nashville food scene for the better, and we are also proud of the work Slow Food is doing internationally.

Thank you Slow Food Middle Tennessee!

Hope everyone is having an egg-cellent weekend. We had a winter miracle and one of our star hens, Rosie, laid the first egg of the year! Unfortunately, it’s frozen solid but it’s still a cool sight to see!

Our garlic is also growing strong despite the freezing weather.

This is an important announcement for all volunteers!!!
Due to inclement weather we will be canceling our volunteer opportunities this Saturday January 13th. There is a good possibility the roads will freeze in the next two days and we don't want anyone getting hurt just trying to get here.

Have a good weekend and stay safe everyone!
