ABOUT: As a volunteer, you will get to know the gorgeous details that went into this 5,600 square-foot home that blends a contemporary feel with the warmth and character of a classic  Tennessee farmhouse.

This year’s Idea House, which will be featured in Southern Living’s September issue, is designed with sustainability in mind, from the herb-and-vegetable garden planted to encourage farm-to-table dining to the collection of vintage and antique furniture thoughtfully placed throughout. The property’s more than 60 acres of bucolic farmland take center stage in the home, with primary living spaces oriented to maximize the views and a color palette that’s tailored to emphasize the natural scenery, rather than distract from it.

Volunteers should dress comfortably. You might choose a classy southern vibe or wear a tee shirt from a benefiting organization. Pick shoes you can easily move around in, and represent our partners positively by avoiding overly casual items like ripped jeans and flip flops.

Shift times are designed to provide volunteers with a 20 minute orientation before giving tours.

This is an amazing and fun way to protect our rivers, bring joy to children with life-threatening illnesses, and support volunteer service in Middle Tennessee!
