About Our Church Garden

Our Church Garden¬†creates a common growing space for the Madison Church family to work together, practice stewardship, build relationships with each other, and provide a tangible expression of God’s love to our neighbors through providing fresh and healthy foods for the local community.

We raise chickens, fish and grow fresh fruits and vegetables without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers in raised garden beds and aquaponic systems, which are then distributed to the local community through our Benevolence Center and Meals-On-Wheels program.

If interested in getting involved in the Church Garden or if you have questions about our ministry, please contact Nathan Hale by phone at (615) 415-9759 or by email at nhale@madisonchurchtn.org.
