Deborah Stillwell
Executive Director


Deborah sees all operations of the garden.  She is a Nashville native, graduating from Hillsboro High School and Vanderbilt University.  Her father was a ‘city boy’ (Ashland City!) and they discovered their love of gardening together by growing vegetables in a hydroponic greenhouse that he had built.  While expanding her gardening knowledge by working in the garden, it is her skill sets of fundraising, marketing and volunteer management that Deborah enjoys using at BELL Garden, especially meeting and working with new volunteers and watching them live up to their potential.  Since BELL Garden is 100% volunteer run, volunteers are always needed as we expand our gardens, programs and outreach. Contact Deborah at if you, your office, school or group are interested in being a part of BELL!
