“EAT, DRINK & BE MERRY” AT 25 NASHVILLE RESTAURANTS AND BARS TO SUPPORT LOCAL FARM CONSERVATION
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – May 10, 2013– On Tuesday, June 4, 2013, a group of 25 community-minded Nashville restaurants and bars will donate a percentage of the day’s sales to The Land Trust for Tennessee in support of its work protecting and raising awareness for Tennessee farms.
With recent attention from the food community, The Land Trust for Tennessee is thrilled to help keep the “FARM” in the current trend of “Farm to Table” cuisine. Currently having protected over 88,000 acres of green space in Tennessee, from public parks to viewsheds on The Natchez Trace Parkway to private family farms, The Land Trust for Tennessee promotes tourism, recreation and local food through permanent conservation.
In the spirit of building community, the entire city is invited to join The Land Trust for Tennessee and local food proprietors to “EAT GREEN TENNESSEE” in support of The Land Trust for Tennessee’s mission to preserve the unique character of Tennessee’s natural and historic landscapes and sites for future generations. For the entire day, you can buy gift certificates, eat a meal, grab a snack, drink a beer, buy local meat and cheese for a dinner party… and it will all be in support of all the Tennessee farmland that gives us seasonal, fresh produce only miles away from where we live.
