ABOUT TURNIP GREEN CREATIVE REUSE
Started in 2010 as Tennessee’s first creative reuse organization,
Turnip Green Creative Reuse (TGCR) is a nonprofit organization that
diverts usable material from our landfill for creative endeavors through
innovative programming including workshops, a retail store, community
education and a green art gallery featuring art made from reusable
materials. TGCR collects and distributes unwanted industrial and
residential materials for the purposes of either turning reusable
materials into creative projects or providing needed supplies to arts
organizations and public schools.
