Where Every Family Matters

Community Days at The Land Trust’s Glen Leven Farm

The historic, urban 64-acre farm opens up for community days once each month.

The public is invited to explore The Land Trust for Tennessee’s Glen Leven Farm (10 minutes south of downtown Nashville) on the second Saturday of each month.

From the nature trail to the honeybee sanctuary, there’s always something new to see. Use the field guide to take a self-guided hike or check out the new family-friendly activity each month to learn more about Nashville’s unique landscape and history.

Young explorers can take a StoryWalk through the arboretum and around the historic home as a tale unfolds page by page in a children’s book. And don’t forget to say hi to the miniature donkeys!
