Green Leaf Learning Farm

Knowledge Quest recently received six donated parcels from the County Land Bank and purchased one for expansion properties. They have installed 24 permanent raised beds on the current organic portion of the farm and renewed organic certification to include additional space on current farm area and all expansion properties (including apartments). They were awarded a $2,000 grant from Tennessee Parks and Recreation Association for purchase of tree stock for orchard. They received infrastructure support from the Memphis Grizzlies Foundation to support the build of a new outdoor classroom & meeting space, complete hoop house, and other infrastructure needs on phase I of farm. Green Leaf Learning Farm has expanded to South Memphis Farmer’s Market and Downtown Market for the 2015 Market season and has been able to increase overall farm staff and capacity by 50%.
