It’s Summer Thyme, And For LSM That Means Gardening!
On May 31, a team of LSM employees got to show off their green thumbs at The Nashville Food Project, an organization that grows, cooks, and shares food with people in need throughout Nashville.
How does The Nashville Food Project work?
The Nashville Food Projects allows members of the community to get involved in 3 core ways; working in the gardens and growing fresh produce, cooking meals for those in need, or distributing the meals across Davidson County in food trucks.
What did LSM do?
The LSM team chose to get their hands dirty in the garden and were given a quick orientation and tour before diving in. We shoveled compost, planted cilantro, and weeded everything we could get our hands on. All the dirty work under the Tennessee sun was worth it to help our community, and we were even sent home with a few fresh strawberries and stalks of asparagus! Our volunteer leader, Julia, said “the crew from Local Search Masters was a pleasure to host in the garden. They brought lots of enthusiasm, worked really hard, and got a lot accomplished in the community garden on a very hot, humid day!”
Well, how was it?
All in all, we had a wonderful day The Nashville Food Project’s beautiful garden and hope to go back soon. Maybe we’ll cook or deliver the food next time! Check out our video about the experience here.
