Raised Bed Workshop

We hope you joined us at The East Nashville Cooperative Ministry last May 12th and learned how to build your very own raised garden bed from locally harvested cedar. This was a FREE class to attend. Everyone left with the knowledge of what materials and tools were needed to build their own raised garden bed. Those who wanted were able to purchase a kit and left with pre-cut wood with pre-drilled holes, and all of the hardware needed for assembly. Once home, all they had to do was assemble their kit and fill it with soil and they wereready to garden! There were (6) sizes to choose from. The $10 ticket price (pay when you register at The Skillery) was taken off of the price of the garden kit select. The East Nashville Cooperative Ministry is located at 807 Main St. .

"I don't say this often, but this organization speaks to the needs of this city right now. Increasing graduation rates is a number one goal of mine. We need to focus on that. Martha O'Bryan does that. It's a wonderful organization. So as we celebrate being one of the best cities in America, remember - our strength comes from taking care of those most in need." ~ Mayor Karl Dean

West End Middle School

We were involved with a visioning and design process to help the teachers, students and parents of West End IB World School develop an outdoor classroom. The classroom will enable the teachers to enhance their learning environment by providing students with creative, hands-on learning opportunities that aren’t available within their regular classrooms.

The design utilized principles of universal design and includes: (19) raised vegetable gardens, council house with solar panels, water harvesting, permeable pavers, rain gardens, certified wildlife habitat, green house with hydroponic systems, educational signage, weather station, human sundial, and more.

The project has received both local and national press and has already begun implementation. Donations are needed to help push this unique project to completion and can be made on their website.
