Natalie Banie

Operations Manager

I was born in the Chicagoland area and migrated to Nashville in 2017 in search of a slower- paced, sunnier lifestyle. Growing up, living things were always my passion. I connected with nature playing in the wetlands in my backyard, at summer camps, and during cross-country road trips. My love for living things has persisted in my life and my home has always been full of plants and animals. After eight years working in real estate management, I took some time away from the corporate world to reconnect to my passions and found myself immersed in the outdoors and yoga. I’m an avid bikram yogi and I enjoy exploring Tennessee’s beautiful state parks. I joined Nashville Foodscapes because I believe sustainable urban gardening can transform communities and restore native species. I am thrilled to support the crew and designers behind the scenes so we can continue creating beautiful and nutritious foodscapes for our clients.
