While all of their hearts are definitely in the right place, occasionally not everybody seems to rowing in the same direction. Without meaning to, these disparate organizations compete for the same grant dollars and for the attention of the very Nashvillians who could benefit the most from their efforts.
Maybe this newly formed Nashville School Garden Coalition can bring some clarity to the discussion, or at the very least get the right people around the same table. If you are interested in learning more about these concepts or want to volunteer to help out, mark your calendar for Thursday, Nov. 10, and become a part of the solution. Today's the deadline to RSVP, so get on the stick. Here are all the details:
School Garden Interest Meeting
Nov. 10, 6 to 8 p.m.
