We told you about the city’s Adopt-a-Street program a few months ago, but here’s another free tool you may not know about.

Second Harvest Food Bank, Tractor Supply, and the Metro Beautification and Environment Commission partnered to create a tool lending program (think: cultivators, hoes, rakes, shears, and more). Pro tip: With the first day of spring right around the corner — Monday, March 20 — it might be a good idea to get those reservation forms in.

How it works

  • Submit your waiver and reservation form.
  • After your pick-up day and time is confirmed, you’ll head to the Nashville Department of Transportation Warehouse (750 S. 5th St.) to collect the tools.

What to know

  • Tools can be checked out by groups working to produce healthy food for donating to community members in need or city beautification and/or improvement projects.
  • Pickups and returns are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
