Company description

Grow Ohio Valley is nationally recognized nonprofit, building thriving communities through local food. We are working actively to launch an innovative year-round farmers market in a food desert, as well as actively seeking to expand potentially groundbreaking programs like the FARMacy, garden-in-every-school, and more. We are seeking a determined person with relevant skills to help us launch and expand these exciting projects -- projects that have potential to re-shape our town and be a model for community development through local food. 

Our core operations consist of: 

Five farm sites, including an urban apple orchard, two high tunnel greenhouses, and a geothermal hothouse, all on urban vacant lots in a hard-up neighborhood.

A range of creative sales-models to bring this locally grown product to food deserts, with a focus on building economic opportunities for local family farms. 

Complementary educational programs that teach community members gardening skills, how to prepare healthy meals, and the importance of eating fresh produce.
