Crabtree Farms

Chattanooga, Tennessee

Crabtree Farms is a non-profit project that promotes sustainable agriculture.  They are re-energizing Chattanooga’s residents and involving them in the local food-shed through a family of programs that play out in an urban teaching farm.

Crabtree Farms was started in 1998 through public and private partnerships.  A 22-acre donated plot of land is now home to the working farm.  A team of staff and volunteers cultivates over 100 varieties of sustainably-grown vegetables, fruits and herbs.  The farm is available as a classroom and playground for locals.  They dig in and get their hands dirty everyday, because their goal is to keep Chattanooga green.
