WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW!

Our New Website

Mill Creek Urban Farm loves our new website and our new logo. Most of all, we love doing what it takes to improve local access to fresh, chemical-free produce at sustainably low cost!

Our new Greenhouse
When Marcos Meledez finished building what we had been calling a hoop house, he told us that we need to start calling it a greenhouse! It is complete and we love it - a huge transformation for the farm. We're planning a ribbon cutting in the spring. Details soon!
