Lunch and Learn on February 4th

Go Green Nashville is honored to have Hector and Susie Black join us to share how they have been stewards of the earth for five decades. They just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary and for all those years their example has shown countless interns and friends how to live an abundant life while doing no harm to the planet. Hidden Springs Nursery in Cookeville is their home and they grow all manner of native and unusual plants. They are best known for their amazing blueberries. Daily life is one of using everything that comes their way for some purpose. They are the only people I know who make flour from acorns.

Come to Second Presbyterian Church on February 4 from 12-1 and share with us the ways you’re living green. The church is located at 3511 Belmont Blvd. Enter around back at the Richard and Graybar corner.
