Annual Barn Dance this Saturday

By Brooklyn Dance
Trevecca’s Urban Farm staff is hosting the third annual barn dance, Barnstock, this Saturday, Oct. 15.
Trevecca is the only school in Nashville with a farm on campus run by students and faculty.  Urban farm workers embrace this, and host Barnstock partially so that the Trevecca community can step foot into the barn and see what it’s about.

Jason Adkins, environmental projects coordinator, explained that not a lot of students ever see the farm or the barn in action.
“[Barnstock] gives people a chance to enjoy the scenery of farm life in the midst of the city,” Adkins said.
Along with petting the farm animals, Adkins explained that there will be a live band, and line dancing will be taught.
More than 100 people have shown up the past two years for the event, all learning to line dance in the middle of Trevecca’s barn.
“The dancing is very simple, and can be learned very quickly,” Adkins said.  “Nazarenes need to learn how to dance, and this is a great starting point.”
Amber Donat, a junior social justice major and farm worker attended the barn dance last year, and encourages everyone to come this year.
“Barnstock really helps to integrate the farm lifestyle to students who are unfamiliar with it in a fun and exuberating way,” Donat said.  “It helps them see what we are doing.”
