Bell Garden is teaching Nashville students all about agriculture and helping feed the hungry

A community garden in west Nashville is teaching young people about agriculture and helping to feed the hungry.

It is called Bell Garden because it is located in the Bellevue Community, just west of downtown Nashville.
It is a combination of raised beds, in-ground, and greenhouses.

The students at the nearby school get to come to the garden and learn how food is grown.
Malcolm Barefield now works there, but he used to walk by and pick blackberries through the fence.

The fruits and vegetables grown at Bell Garden go to Nashville area food banks.
