We are Nashville's only nonprofit dedicated to improving the health and well-being of our city through sustainability. We fill a gap by offering programs that inspire people of all ages to incorporate sustainability into their daily lives. Our new Mobile Lab, a science-based interactive classroom that travels to local schools, is inspiring the next generation of sustainability leaders! Workshops on everything from green building to urban agriculture spark positive changes at home and work that save money, improve health, and conserve resources. An innovative partnering model that includes Nissan as our Founding Partner, plus local businesses, nonprofits, and colleges focuses on facilitating programming that measurably improves the lives of Nashvillians. With your help as a volunteer, donor, and participant we are building a community-based movement for a sustainable Music City.
