Knowledge Quest, a nonprofit based in south Memphis, is turning a vacant apartment building into a center for urban immersion learning. The building, which sits next to the organization’s organic urban farm, will soon house college students who will come to study subjects like agriculture, education and business.
But the nonprofit has even bigger plans for the 10-unit apartment complex, which sits on S. Lauderdale St. In the future they plan on building a common area, as well as a restaurant where young people can learn the culinary arts. Eventually they hope to equip the roof with solar panels.
