Grow Ohio Valley builds thriving communities through local food. We envision a community in which farmers flourish and local, healthy food is a way of life.

  • About Us
    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.
  • Our Impact
    -Increased food security and independence
    -Improved access to fresh, locally-grown foods
    -Create a thriving local food economy
    -Sustainable farming practices
    -Lower rates of diet-related diseases
    -Beautification and use of previously vacant sites
    -A healthy and happy community!
