Amber Fuqua

Installation Manager/ Worker-Owner

Born and raised in Joelton, TN, my love for the outdoors began early in my childhood exploring the woods near where I grew up. I pursued an undergraduate degree in Environmental Science and Sustainability at Lipscomb University which fortuitously opened my eyes to the connection between local food, farming, and building equitable communities. After graduating, I spent time working in the community and urban gardens at The Nashville Food Project and Hands On Nashville. I then spent two years at Caney Fork Farms in Carthage, TN growing vegetables and coming to understand the importance and vitality of regenerative agricultural practices. In between farming seasons at CFF, I began to learn the basics of woodworking while building out a camper van and working at Scheibe Design – a small, family run furniture company.

Now with Nashville Foodscapes, I am thrilled to be able to combine my skills and passion for farming and woodworking to build beautiful gardens across the city of Nashville. I love that at Nashville Foodscapes we are working to bridge the connections between people, land, and the knowledge of the food and ecosystems that surround us.
