Community Giving Gardens

Knoxville Y Community Giving Gardens

Are you looking for a way to help our community?

One third of kids in and around East Tennessee grow up in homes without enough food. This fact caused your Y to act! With a group of volunteers and staff from the YMCA of East Tennessee, who seed, weed, and harvest with a lot of love and dedication, the Y has created Community Giving Gardens that provides fresh produce to families in need. If you are interested in volunteering your time, talent or treasure to this worthy project, please contact Ellen or Pam and find out how you can help.

Our Knoxville Y Community Giving Gardens are located at the Davis Family Y, The Cansler Family Y and will soon be growing at our Summer Day Camp site at the Beaumont Elementary School.
