Our Work

Refugee Agricultural Partnership Program (RAPP)

Did you know that many of Nashville’s refugees have agrarian backgrounds? Before moving to the United States, some of our refugees were successful farmers, producing food for their families or selling food at farmer’s markets.

We are excited to announce a new program that allows the Center to support those who want to continue to use their skills and garden or farm here in Nashville. We are partnering with The Nashville Food Project and FASHA to offer two unique programs that engage refugees in local agricultural opportunities.

RAPP is funded by the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

Other grant funders that support our work:

  • Tennessee Recreation and Parks Association
