The mission of Live Work Eat Grow is to cultivate and nourish communities through the support of local food, farms and gardens; the creation and growth of jobs; the advocacy of a home for everyone, and the gathering of friends and neighbors.

We do this through our priority areas: fostering food based small business development, enhancing community vibrancy, increasing food security, and ensuring we are a financially sustainable and vibrant community organization.
