Since 2012, Build It Up has offered gardening education and installed over 100 new gardens in East TN. We offer support to backyard gardeners, market gardeners, and school and community gardens.
Backyard Gardener Program
We take 30-40 families through a year of organic gardening education and support. Families receive plants, seeds, tools, fertilizer and more to help grow healthy, fresh foods right in their own backyard!
Market Gardener Program
We encourage entrepreneurship through agriculture and support market gardeners up to a half acre in size. We have a growers coup that sells to restaurants and a multi-farm CSA.
Our gardening experts would love to help you design a backyard, community or school garden! We also do food forests, perennial fruit & nut tress, and native edible plants.
