ValleyHUB is a farm, food hub, and education center based at the Food Innovation Center at Kalamazoo Valley Community College located at 224 E Crosstown Pkwy, Kalamazoo. The Urban Farm at ValleyHUB showcases a range of sustainable agricultural practices. Our five-acre site includes an indoor grow room; a heated greenhouse, outdoor raised beds; and a passive solar hoophouse. The Food Hub is a licensed food processing facility equipped to produce fresh-cut fruits and vegetables at a range of production scales. The facility also has a Visitor Center and 30-seat classroom.
At ValleyHUB, our goal is to get more healthy food onto more plates in Southwest Michigan by training, educating, and supporting the fresh food supply chain. We have a range of educational programs. We work with MSU Extension, FamilyFarmed, and others to offer skills-focused workshops for farmers and food processors. We host community meetings and conferences for professionals in the food system. We offer fun, practical classes about sustainability and self-sufficiency that are open to all.
