Site Visit | Beardsley Community Farm

This afternoon, we were finally able to see the Beardsley Farm site in person.  Khann Chov, farm manager, showed us around the vegetable gardens, greenhouse, bee hives and chicken coop.  From humble beginnings, Beardsley Farm has grown into an organization that donates tens of thousands of pounds of food each year.  Not only through donations, but also through gardening demonstrations and educational volunteer opportunities, Beardsley Farm is bringing sustainable food practice to the people of Knoxville. The classroom and office structure that we are building has been seven years in the making, according to Kahnn, and she could not express her enthusiasm enough.  Now, to “make like a bee and keep up the hard work.”
