You can grow your own food. We can help.

Gaia Community Table Garden

  The Community Table Garden that Gaia Memphis is proposing will have multiple purposes.  This garden will serve as solution to excessive blight by filling a vacant lot of land, the garden will also provide an educational aspect by hosting field trips of students who will come to learn about rain water collection, irrigation, and wind and solar energy.
  The third purpose of the Community Table Garden will be to donate all produce from the garden, both to food insecure residents, as well as to the local food bank/shelters who are providing regular meals to our homeless residents.
  This first Community Table Garden of Memphis will be the pilot garden launching of Gaia’s educational program, and we hope to continue this project onto several other vacant pieces of land around the city, helping to improve some areas of town in need of attention, and provide free produce to people who may not otherwise have access to it.
