About Us

GROW Enrichment is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization based in Nashville, TN. As a community development partner, GROW seeks to increase sustainable land use in the urban setting. Through a partnership with Metro Nashville Parks Department, GROW operates a large project site at Two Rivers Park where we are applying permaculture methodology to engage the public in the process of restoring an urban green space. Our goal is to engage people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities as we teach restorative land management through hands-on experiences. Whether you attend an organized program with us, participate in a volunteer event, tour the site with a group, or meet us by chance while you are out enjoying the green-way; we hope you will find inspiration for your own ecological journey when you visit GROW!

 

GROW GOAT PROJECT

We have many diverse, yet interconnected, goals for our project site at Two Rivers Park. As we've worked alongside volunteers, partner non-profit organizations, and community partners we've grown in our own understanding that the park itself is part of a dynamic ecological system and that responsible stewardship means using all available resources wisely. As a result, we've determined that, within the context of sustainable land management, we must work smarter rather than harder. The tasks of managing invasive non-native plants on the property, as well as maintenance of grassy areas, could be undertaken more efficiently by employing nature's own processes. So, we've decided to put in a call to Mother Nature for reinforcements! It's time to get some #GROWgoats!

Learning, Naturally

At GROW we believe that the natural world makes a perfect living laboratory for students of all ages. We believe in hands-on experiential learning. We believe in student-led discovery. We believe in the power of nature to spark curiosity, wonder, creativity, play, and community. 

 

Where learning begins with planting a seed...
