Harpeth Hall news story
Nashville Scene

We are delighted to be hosting the Tennessee Local Food Summit at Harpeth Hall, and to support their work educating the local community about the benefits of the local food movement. At Harpeth Hall, part of our mission is to prepare students to think critically about local and global issues and inequities. We are also committed to multi-faceted sustainability initiatives and environmental stewardship, and believe that we are charged with developing a generation of women leaders who have both the skills and the knowledge to affect meaningful change. 

We see Harpeth Hall's involvement in the Tennessee Local Food Summit as a natural and exciting outgrowth of our commitment to supporting our neighbors and stewarding our community's resources. We look forward to welcoming the event team and its attendees to our campus.

Jess Hill, Head of School
