Help Mill City Grows provide healthy, locally grown food to those that need it most! Make a donation today and sponsor a Farm Share for a Lowell family.


Founded in 2011, Mill City Grows increases community access to healthy, farm fresh food throughout greater Lowell through our Urban Farm, Mobile Market, and School Garden Programs. Additionally, our Community Garden Program provides families the opportunity to grow their own food on protected land, while our Food Education Programs bring hands-on cooking, gardening, and nutrition education to local families as well as to thousands of students throughout the Lowell Public School system.
