Nashvillians are trying to make their community a more sustainable place and there are a variety of programs to ensure this happens.
The most comprehensive resource for this is Greener Nashville. Greener Nashville says they are a "one-stop resource for sustainable living in Middle Tennessee." On the receiving end of three large grants, Greener Nashville maintains an extensive website with information about sustainable businesses in many sectors, resources, and ways to support and promote sustainability efforts.
In addition to Greener Nashville, there is the Nashville Urban Harvest - a community group that is working to build and maintain a sustainable food system within Nashville in tandem with local producers and community-supported agriculture.
