Fresh produce delivered to East Knoxville food desert by BattleField Farm truck

BattleField Farm & Gardens is on the move.

From the organization’s beginnings as a “gleaning fence,” which provided fresh vegetables for the taking at a plot next to Tabernacle Baptist, to the founding of BattleField Farm & Gardens in 2018, to the beginning of the Eastside Farmers Market, the Rev. Chris Battle has worked with others to address food insecurity in East Knoxville.
