About us

The Trevecca Urban Farm was inspired as a teaching tool to equip students to help food-insecure neighborhoods around the world. In the heart of Nashville, livestock guardian dogs oversee our heritage goats, pigs, and chickens as they graze Trevecca’s campus and lots nearby. A worm farm, an aquaponics fish farm, campus composting, beekeeping, urban orchard, greenhouse, vegetable garden, and two additional community gardens produce abundantly within view of Nashville’s skyscrapers. The Trevecca Urban Farm is a program of the J.V. Morsch Center for Social Justice.

As part of an environmental program...

We recognize that nothing impacts the created world and its inhabitants like farming–still the livelihood of half the world’s workers. As Wendell Berry reminds us, “How we eat determines, to a considerable extent, how the world will be used.” Good farming can save the planet. We teach and practice community-centered organic agriculture that heals the land and the communities that depend on it.

As part of a justice program...

We recognize that the gifts of the land and environmental burdens are not shared equitably. The world’s poorest communities face the greatest threats to chemical exposure, dumping, flooding, displacement, and inadequate food access. Our task is to work as neighbors with neighbors to foster the healing of our place.
