Treehouse is a family space that cultivates creativity and connection through arts and community. It was created to provide parents, caretakers, and children with opportunities to expand their collective networks of support while participating in activities that nurture the mind, body, and spirit.

 
 

Our Beginning

Gilda Davidian and Stefani Greenwood met at CalArts in the mid 2000s and have worked on many projects together. They are both artists and mothers. Treehouse is a culmination of their ideas for a radical family space rooted in creativity and community. Help us build Treehouse! Your donation will help us lay the foundation for a space where families can come together to learn, create and grow.

Our Mission

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.

Get Involved

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.
