Live, Work, Eat, Grow's mission is to cultivate vibrant communities in the New River Valley. 

We manage Millstone Kitchen a shared-use kitchen designed to launch and grow small food businesses and support a diversity of entrepreneurs. We also manage three community gardens including the Hale garden, the Wong Park garden and the Garrison garden at Cedar Hill.  

Over the past year we have:

Served 13,321 meals to low income, at-risk and elderly individuals through our Millstone Meals program 

Hosted 157 volunteers from 10 organizations, totaling 2,000+ volunteer hours

Hosted two weeks of summer camp for kids

Provided 109 garden plots for families to grow their own food year-round

Installed a native plant propagation center with the NRV Regional Commission

Supported 15 small businesses operating out of Millstone Kitchen


Next year, with your support, we plan to: 

- continue our meal program serving low income families and seniors

- engage kids and adults in hands-on learning activities

- begin site planning for another community garden in an unserved area of Blacksburg 

- offer start-up support to small business food entrepreneurs 

- install a walk in cooler to increase capacity to store donated produce and fresh meals

None of our work would be possible without the generous support of our community. Your gift directly supports these programs and more.
