Welcome to Mill City Grows! We are growing a healthier Lowell through creating urban food production sites all over the city and providing the tools for safe urban growing!
Saturday, September 20th was our 3rd Annual Harvest Festival!
This year, over 600 residents joined us at the Harvest Fest to share the power of local food. We also exceeded our fundraising goal, raising critical funds to support our programs and grow a healthier Lowell.
Thank you to everyone that attended! Volunteer support made this event possible.
Mill City Grows was selected as one of five of Root Cause’s 2014 Social Innovators! Mill City Grows is representing the Sustainability in Our Communities: Building Greener and Healthier Cities Track.

Thank you to all of our generous donors who helped us reach our Annual Appeal goal, in April of 2014 we will be expanding the Smith Street Community Garden. We couldn’t do this work without your support, THANK YOU!
Mill City Grows is fostering Food Justice in Lowell! We work to create urban food production sites and give Lowell residents the knowledge to grow their own food or purchase locally grown food!
