For the past few months there's been an increase in activity and "buzz" around the Sustainable Future Center in the Vestal neighborhood. The main reason is that we started hosting the FISH Hospitality Pantry's South Knoxville location.

We are so grateful for our partnership with the Vestal Boys & Girls Club! While the most recent project that we collaborated with them on is the installation of their new Stormwater Catchment System, we have been involved with them for the past several years through our collaboration with their Garden Club. Through this partnership, we help them maintain their garden and they return the favor. They are currently working with us to grow microgreens! Aside from the work that we do together, the Vestal Boys & Girls Club is a wonderful organization that works to educate children in a safe and supportive environment and we are so happy to have them as a partner.
