The last two months have been incredibly busy for us here at FASHA. We’ve been working with a great team of dedicated individuals who are helping us get ready for our project launch at the end of May. We’ve been laying the ground work for what we hope will be a spectacular project that the whole Nashville community can get behind.

As we mentioned in the past, the property we use for our urban farm is a “flood zone” property. That means, it’s one of many properties around Nashville that sits unoccupied, indefinitely, because it tends to flood. The specific property we have access to, used to contain two houses, but since the devastating floods of 2010, both houses were permanently removed. Once the houses were removed along with pipes and plumbing, the only thing left was this empty, but glorious piece of land. We have lots of plans for this space, and we will continue to share them with you as we go along.

Over the past two months, we have gotten some water/plumbing put back unto the property.

We got a chance to flag the area, where we will first break ground, and install our farm plots.
