We want to give a big thank you to the delicious food trucks that are supporting Urban Green Lab's efforts through community fun, good foods, and sustainability in Sevier Park on Sunday afternoons this summer! Crepe A Diem, Blue Monkey, Jones Press, Pita Pit, Retro Sno, Grilled Cheeserie, Peach Truck, Artis, and Electric Sliders - your yummy, wholesome foods and dedication to community enhancement make us beam.
Brittney Blackshear of Crepe A Diem is the mastermind behind the entire Sunday Fund'ay series. She approached Urban Green Lab with exciting ideas for a partnership because she wanted to give back to the community and contribute to Nashville's well-being and resilience... and she came to the right place! As we built up our sustainability education in Nashville, partnerships are everything - particularly ones with mission-focused folks like Brittney.
As a part of Sunday Fund'ay, all food trucks involved agree to donate a portion of their sales to our sustainability education. This picture of Urban Green Lab Executive Director Jennifer Westerholm and Brittney Blackshear holding our first check from Sunday's profits makes us smile. We are grateful for all of the bountiful support and hard work that went into this!
We are interested in making the event sustainable in and of itself through recycling, compost bins, and an agreement not to use any styrofoam in the food trucks. In order to make Sunday Fund'ay all the more fulfilling and educational, we are hosting various DIY workshops throughout the summer. Our first workshop on Sunday, DIY Origami Newspaper Seed-Starters, was a great start and we're looking forward to more! Have an idea for a DIY sustainable craft or activity?

Now that we got you so interested in Sunday Fund'ays in Sevier Park, remember to come out, bring your dog, a kite, and an appetite!
