and supporting youth while conserving land

Together, we stand for something greater

Teaching garden expansion coming soon!

We are excited to announce that we are breaking ground on our new greenhouse.

Sketch Greenhouse Coming Soon

Having a greenhouse will allow us to start our teaching garden from seeds and propagate our own plants which will not only save us money but provide more learning/teaching opportunities for our interns and master gardener. It will also enable us to grow plants during the winter months so we can continue to provide fresh food for our interns year-round.

This gorgeous new addition has been the result of collaboration and support from several local organizations and individuals including: Bob and Deb Hulse, The Garden Club of Lookout Mountain, The Robert Finley Stone Foundation, and Colonial Pipeline. It is only with their support that we can make this happen, and we are so grateful.

Stay tuned for updates!

Voices from the Mountain

Its a first

“You see, folks who grow up like me often take what we get. We don’t expect a lot. When we look around, we don’t see a lot of success stories. It almost seems like you’re destined to keep repeating the same patterns. But I looked around and saw two other interns that were in college and I wanted to be like them. The staff at the Conservancy never gave up on me and kept encouraging me. They believed in me."
