Grow Ohio Valley works to strengthen Ohio Valley communities, families, and residents through growing food, educational initiatives, and economic development.

About Grow Ohio Valley

We operate five production sites, including an urban apple orchard, two high tunnel greenhouses, and a geothermal hothouse. Produce grown at these sites is combined with produce from local farms and loaded onto our mobile farmers market. The market brings fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, and honey to food deserts - areas which have limited access to fresh foods. Complementary educational programs teach community members gardening skills, how to prepare healthy meals, and the importance of eating fresh produce.
