Every Southern woman

Every Southern woman is supposed to wear funny hats and grow vegetables in the dirt, at least according to the move Steel Magnolias. Betsy will be in charge of the funny hats. Kim and I will get our fingers dirty in the new raised bed outside CRC’s front door, thanks to our super board member, Chip Higgins.

We have the beginnings of tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries and blackberries. The tomatoes we’ll tie on to the fancy trellis (or green screen, as the architects call it). If all goes well, we will offer the produce to anyone who happens by the building and take any surplus to a food desert where there is no nearby grocery store. If things don’t go well, and I concede that is a possibility, we’ll plant inside the locked gate. But here’s hoping for the best from an idealistic gardener who wants to do as much outside our new building as inside.

So to our passersby, especially at night – give this stuff a chance to grow, will you? You’ll be handsomely rewarded in a few weeks.

About CRC Nashville

Who are we? We are literally two chicks - Catherine Mayhew and Betsy Everett, and a warehouse - the Community Resource Center (CRC). In short, CRC is a non-profit organization that provides household goods, furniture, and appliances to people in desperate need. Think of us as Robin Hoods – without the stealing. Catherine is a former journalist and Betsy is a marketing chick. We are both devoted to acquiring stuff – good stuff, no junk – because that’s what our most fragile citizens deserve. If you have metal desks, televisions that don’t work or underwear you don’t want anymore, don’t give it to us. We’ll sneer at you. If you are companies that have excess primo stuff like furniture in good condition, school supplies, personal hygiene items or pretty much anything else, we’ll be your new best friends.
