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

I never imagined my dream could become reality

"Because of a mom who showed me how real the struggle can be, and with teachers who didn’t give up on me, I was able to push through the challenges of the program on Lookout Mountain. Initially, I didn’t see how or why the program would teach me to trust others and myself. Now, as a result of the program, I can clearly see my way forward to making my dream of being an Anesthesiologist come true.″
