Crabtree Farms , a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was founded in 1998 to bring urban sustainable agriculture to Chattanooga. The mission of Crabtree Farms is to connect Chattanoogans with our local foodshed. Crabtree Farms serves the greater Chattanooga community through education and advocacy programs that teach about growing food sustainably and choosing local produce.
Crabtree’s Farm-To-School and adult education programs teach the importance of healthy living and sustainable agriculture through tours and hands-on demonstrations of farming and gardening at our Urban Farm. Our programs include: Future Farmer Internships, Farmer-For-A-Day, Community garden training, Farm Field Days for kids and tours for all ages. On-site education takes place on the awesome Urban Farm- the heart and soul of Crabtree Farms.
Volunteers are a welcome contribution at Crabtree Farms! Volunteer opportunities exist for a variety of skill and physical ability. There are 5 main areas to volunteer at Crabtree: the urban farm, greenhouse, programs/admin, education, and special events. Some people volunteer as individuals; others in groups. We offer an orientation program for volunteers. These dates are on our website. Orientation is helpful but not necessarily required. Browse more opportunities for Crabtree Farms
