From helping edit curriculum taught to youth at the Hands On Nashville Urban Farm to leading volunteers in garden projects, Andy Myers has served with the Hands On Nashville Urban Agriculture Program for more than a year.

Andy is a Coast Guard veteran and is currently studying sustainability at Lipscomb University. Her enthusiasm and energy around urban agriculture have found a home in our work. Andy’s gardening skills and ability to effectively combat problems have made her invaluable to our program, and we are most thankful for her service.

Andy says she is just happy to take part.

“I volunteer at Hands On Nashville because I love working the soil, I love learning,” she said, adding how she enjoys trying and learning new farming techniques and projects. “I love being a part of local food, community, and service.”
