The Morthland Foundation is helping revitalize our community by bringing agriculture to West Frankfort’s downtown core. Our Green Leaf Cafe is open Monday through Friday in Washington Hall, and Idlewild: The Community Gardens of MC are coming soon!
The Foundation plans to begin a larger urban agriculture project with the construction of greenhouses on two empty lots downtown. Produce grown in the greenhouses will be used to alleviate food insecurity. Ornamental plants grown there will help with downtown beautification projects. And the abundance from the growing operation will be sold to make the project sustainable.
