Green Village Initiative’s Mission

Green Village Initiative is a non-profit in Bridgeport, Connecticut whose mission is to grow food, knowledge, leadership and community, through urban gardening and farming, to create a more just food system in Bridgeport. 

Green Village Initiative Programs

Green Village Initiative’s farms and gardens nurture a grassroots movement of urban growers of all ages across the city. We manage a network of Community Gardens, School Gardens, Reservoir Community Farm, and a Youth Leadership program for the benefit of the Bridgeport community.
