Mill Village Farms has been making a difference in the community since starting the Sullivan Street urban farm in 2012. They have a mobile market where they make fresh produce available in communities that were were previously ‘food deserts’ – neighborhoods without a grocery store. Now there is an inviting storefront on Lois Street in the Village of West Greenville.

Freshly grown organic vegetables can be completely grown in as little as 24 days.

Much more than just providing fresh produce, they provide jobs and training for youth. Recently for example, high school students were given the chance to practice interviewing to increase confidence when applying for jobs.
