Shopping local is so important for our community, economy, farmers, and your health!

As Sustainable Future Center expands it's vision of building an engaged community and a sustainable future for the city of Knoxville, we have launched our Farm To Table Sale!

Freshly picked greens, garlic, small bundles of herbs: thyme, rosemary, oregano, greens, sage, microgreens, radishes, cucumbers, zucchini, eggs and more!

Please bring your own bags to REDUCE WASTE. Thank you! Questions? Contact Nicole Fey, Events Coordinator at info@sfcknox.org

Community Garden: planting, harvesting, weeding, watering, upkeep of beds, et.
Clearing the fence line of weeds (a great workout!)
Sifting dirt
