Launched in 2016, the Wardensville Garden Market + Bakery is a thriving farm and food-based social enterprise dedicated to expanding opportunities for local Appalachian youth. We address historically negative economic development in Appalachia, which often only created profits for outside companies, by operating like a business, harnessing the power of market demand to generate income, while also creating positive impact locally. In 2018, our budget grew to over $1M, and since we are a non-profit, 100% of that was reinvested back into the project and local community.
We grow more than vegetables! Visit our website to help support our mission to hire and inspire more local Appalachian youth: http://www.wardensvillegardenmarket.org
