Healthy living begins with healthy eating
It’s no secret that what you eat has a profound effect on how you think, look, and feel. Especially as you age, a nutrient-rich diet is vital to your health and happiness.
The Villages Grown was born out of a desire to provide residents and the surrounding community with hyper-fresh, nutrient-dense food to support healthy, active lifestyles.
More than a single greenhouse or market, The Villages Grown is a hyper-local community food system, anchored by a 45-acre innovative growing complex, and facilitated by our markets and partner establishments.
This community food system is designed to benefit not only the health of the residents, but that of the environment and economy. It’s all about cultivating a vibrant community where people feel great and live life to the fullest.
