June Loving Spoonful Fundraisers for Ijams Nature Center

The Tomato Head celebrates one of Knoxville’s oldest and largest parks.

We invite you to join us throughout June as we fundraise for Knoxville’s most beloved park, Ijams Nature Center. Ijams offers over 300 acres of protected wildlife habitat and natural areas with over 12 miles of trails as well as convenient access to Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness. As a member and visitor supported nonprofit, your generous donations are needed to continue its ongoing legacy.

“Ijams is excited to partner with Tomato Head and their Loving Spoonful program for the month of June. All of the proceeds for the month will go towards programs to get kids in the Knoxville area active and outdoors,” said Mary Thom Adams, Development Coordinator. “The mission of Ijams is to provide engaging outdoor experiences for all people, and with the help of Tomato Head, we are working towards a happier and healthier community here in East Tennessee.”

A portion of the proceeds generated at each event go directly to Ijams Nature Center.

  • All month (Breaking Bread Fundraiser) Proceeds from the sale of any type of Flour Head Bakery bread at both Tomato Head locations goes to Ijams.
  • June 12 (Sandwich Day Fundraiser) Both Tomato Head locations will offer a special Ijams Nature Center sandwich.
  • June 17 (Pint Night Fundraiser)Featuring Turtle Anarchy Brewing Company’s “More Than Meets the Rye” double dry hopped IPA.

“Ijams is such a positive force in our community that they were an easy choice as Loving Spoonful partners.  Their work at preserving our natural environment and making their campus open and inviting for all of Knoxville to enjoy is paralleled only by the beauty of the Ijams park itself,” said Tomato Head co-owner Scott Partin.

But the fun doesn’t stop there!
