Our vision is to redevelop vacant properties in Greenville's historic mill communities into bountiful gardens that grow food for the surrounding community while also providing employment opportunities for neighborhood youth.
Many of our communities have been labeled food deserts. This essentially means our residents have a wide access ramp to heavily processed foods and a limited, often expensive, path to fresh, locally-grown produce. We, at MVF, are working to combat this situation by establishing fruit and vegetable farms on neighborhood street blocks.
Concurrently, our mission is also to provide youth employment opportunities. We at MVF are providing youth, aged 12-18, with a first-time job experience in sustainable agriculture, entrepreneurship, and basic job skills.
Come join with us, we are always looking for financial and volunteer support!
