The mission of Live, Work, Eat, Gather, Inc. is to cultivate and nourish communities through the support of local food, farms and gardens; the creation and growth of jobs; and the gathering of friends and neighbors.

We do this through fostering food based small business development, enhancing community vibrancy, increasing food security, and ensuring LWEG as an organization is strategically developed to be a financially sustainable and vibrant community organization.

Live Work Eat Gather, Inc initially formed to support the revitalization of the historic old Prices Fork elementary school which now provides affordable housing and economic development opportunities for new and expanding local food-based entrepreneurs through a commercial shared-use kitchen, a craft brewery, and a forthcoming local food restaurant.

Live Work Eat Gather continues to manage the commercial shared-use ‘Millstone Kitchen‘ and its small business development and hunger relief programs.

Live Work Eat Gather also manages a community garden program which includes the 70 plot Hale community garden and the new 15 plot Wong Park community garden. It is working in partnership with the Town of Blacksburg to develop additional community gardens throughout the community.
