The FASHA team meets Knowledge Academies and Ada’s Rules teams!

Team FASHA continues to work on the urban farm initiative. We cannot wait to break ground and to get this project up and running. Earlier this month, we met with Knowledge Academies and Ada’s Rules author Alice Randall, Katie Sulkowski (Ada’s Rules), and Trevor Henderson (NashVitality). We discussed possible partnerships, which ranged from creating a green campus, to book clubs, to fitness activities all in an effort to make health a priority for our communities in the Nashville area.  Beyond exploring ways to collaborate, we learned the many benefits of sweet potatoes. It turns out that sweet potatoes have a low glycemic index, contain vitamin A and fiber, and can be stored away for about three months! Who knew?! Stay tuned to our blog to hear more about our efforts towards building self-sustaining communities through urban farming!
