Sylvan Street Garden was founded in 2007 by a group of friends. We are all East Nashville residents and friends. We shared a huge love for all things food and cooking and one evening we concocted an idea to start a community garden in East Nashville so that we could have access to fresh, local veggies. We decided it would be even better if the families, many of them Somalian refugees, at the non-profit center in CWA Housing and James A. Cayce Homes, could benefit from the garden. These families were almost all involved in farming in Africa, and they were all suffering from the high cost of providing fresh produce for their families.
We talked to Metro Parks and they donated a piece of land at the Kirkpatrick Center, very close to all of the families. This first year has definitely been a series of trial and error, however, in the end we were able to provide fresh vegetables and fruits for all of the families involved and more!

We do our best to keep this guide accurate, but farming is a dynamic
occupation, things change fast. It is a good idea to call and verify
any of the information in this guide before you plan a trip to a
farm. Also, please be considerate. The farms in this guide are working
farms as well as residences in many cases. If you think of yourself
more as a valued guest than a customer you'll have a great experience.
