The Farm @ 10th and Main
The word is out! The Food Initiative, a nonprofit organization in Clarksville, TN is expanding their program and mission to downtown Springfield. Soon an urban farm with raised garden beds and a greenhouse with Tower Gardens will be in the lot directly behind the South Side Drugs building. This site will not only serve as a place to grow fresh food, but a place to bring together and serve a diverse community. The Food Initiative’s mission is to grow healthy food, empower lives and build community. This new urban farm, called The Farm @ 10th and Main will allow The Food Initiative to expand their mission into Robertson County. The vision is to make healthy food accessible, affordable, and to offer educational classes on health, nutrition and food prep. The site will also host a “Summer Youth Program” for high school students in Robertson County where students will experience hard work, learn about agriculture, health, and more about themselves, the land, and their community. Be on the lookout for more details as we get closer to making this dream a reality!
