Old School Farm – Growing Fresh Produce for the Greater Nashville Area
We are a Nashville-based produce farm creating vocation, education, and job opportunities to people of all abilities and backgrounds.
Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Emma Berkey, Volunteer Coordinator and Distribution Coordinator, and Nicolette Maio, Media and Community Outreach Coordinator, with Old School Farm, who highlight the nonprofit’s mission and efforts to employ adults with ALL abilities to grow, harvest, and deliver fresh produce to food deserts in the Middle Tennessee area. During the interview, Emma and Nicolette highlight some of the different produce grown, the impact on and relationships formed with the adults and volunteers who work on the farm, their relationships with local food pantries, how they are working with other farms and farmers through the Bells Bend Conservation Corridor, how the community can help, and much more.
