Together, We're Changing the Way People Think
Our Mission is to make a difference in the lives of Nova Scotians by supporting mental health initiatives in our communities. Our annual Nova Scotia Health Authority Mental Health & Addictions, Central Zone Grants and Community Grants fund important work. These grants offer learning opportunities, relationship development, recovery and integration supports, and most importantly, hope for mental health consumers and their loved ones
"We're here to help the 1 in 5 Nova Scotians dealing with mental illness this year."

Kent County is one of the most severely underserved communities in Tennessee. To combat this adversity, Project Sprout seeks to nourish our neighbors at the most fundamental level with healthy food options and a strong support network. All members get a portion of each harvest and surpluses are donated to low-income families whose work schedules prevent them from volunteering.

With ten gardens and counting, Project Sprout has seen a significant improvement in mental and physical health for all participating community members. Other than lowering obesity, blood pressure, and depression rates, the crime rate has also fallen. Our children are doing better in school, reporting higher grades and aspirations, and better job prospects.
If you live near one of our gardens, get involved to receive portions of each harvest. We accept volunteers regardless of skill level. There is a rotation in roles, but we’ll teach you all the skills you need to know. Teenagers 14 years and older can earn community service credits for school in addition to getting produce for their families. Donations are also vital to our growth, as we use them for seed, fertilizer, tools, and outreach.
