 Old School Farm Pottery (OSFP) was an intentional social collaboration initiated by Julia Whitney Brown which eventually grew into a program within the nonprofit Old School Farm.

OSFP partnered with the nonprofit's organic vegetable farm run by Benjamin Brown, and a farm-to-table restaurant guided by Chef Kirstie Bidwell. Working together, they sought to redeem community, place, and work through support of local businesses, high quality food experiences, and the equal and fair employment of adults with intellectual disabilities in Nashville, TN.


The pottery studio offers 3 areas engaged in social and civic practice created by Julia including: education and outreach,  tableware used in the resturant, and through inclusive employment opportunities.
