Because you want to start a community garden. Because learning doesn’t end when school does. Because a great library makes a great city. There is always a ‘because’ behind the causes we support. We devote our time and energy to the things that matter most to us. Your support of Nashville Public Library is no different. The reasons you visit the library may be different from your friends and neighbors. But we all have this in common: every time someone uses NPL’s resources and services, our library becomes a tool for democracy. Providing equal access to ideas and information empowers our community, one person at a time. We are taking time to consider the many ways NPL transforms Nashville – from traditional resources, such as books and workshops, to unexpected offerings like free seeds and ukulele checkouts. NPL empowers Nashvillians to learn, explore, and thrive according to their interests and dreams.

than they are worth. These can be quickly plucked by hand. Look up images of suckers online to verify you are picking the right stems!” - Matt Fox, Four-time Blue Ribbon cherry tomato champion, TN State Fair

“It’s all about the soil. You can put in the most gorgeous plants, but if you ignore your soil, they won’t be gorgeous for long. I like to say that I grow healthy soil and the flowers are just a byproduct.”

Expert Tip: DIY Tomato Cages

- Laura Bigbee-Fott, Whites Creek Flower Farm “Your tomato plants may quickly outgrow the flimsy prefab cages found at most retailers. If you have the time (and an updated tetanus shot), consider making your own cages out of welded wire field fencing. A spool can make countless durable cages that will last you and your gardening friends for years!” - Matt Fox, Four-time Blue Ribbon cherry tomato champion, TN State Fair
