Garden At Westside Missionary Baptist Church Expands

Monday, April 8, 2019

The Net Resource Foundation is partnering with Healthier Tennessee to expand the community garden at Westside Missionary Baptist Church. The garden will support the Right Hand Feeding Program and give residents access to a fresh, sustainable food source. 

The Net Resource Foundation initially helped build the garden in September 2017.

“After a successful summer and late fall harvest it became evident that there was a need to enlarge the garden to meet the needs of our programs and the community,” said Raquetta Dotley of The Net Resource Foundation. 

The program will be maintained by community residents, members of the Westside Church, and students in the Net Resource Foundation’s programs. In addition to the relaunch of the garden, the Net Resource Foundation will start a monthly garden club to educate and aid residents as they build personal gardens.  

The community is invited to attend the Healthier Southside CommUNITY Kickoff on Friday, April 19, at the Westside Missionary Baptist Church, 4001 Hughes Ave., from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. 

This initial kick off will host vendors, introduce and highlight the residential and community garden programs, as well as the physical exercise initiatives. Volunteers may email Raquetta Dotley at theresourcefoundation@gmail.com or call her at 401-0503.
