When issues happen with supply chains as we see happening today, self-sustainability to grow our own food… for your family or in a community takes on a new meaning!

Cross Creek Hydroponics Cares 501c3 mission is to install indoor towers, raised garden beds, and greenhouse environments for various community projects, deliver nutrition education and inspire volunteerism that excites the imagination …engaging leaders who wish to make a positive impact in metropolitan and rural food desert regions.​

Cross Creek Cares

Growing food is a learning experience that yields reward long after harvest. Hydroponic Grow Wall systems provide the opportunity to “grow up” vertically in relatively small spaces where sustainable planting and harvesting enhances a responsibility to community outreach, providing abundant healthy food choices. ​

Cross Creek Hydroponics’ continuing mission is to install indoor towers and greenhouse environments in schools and community centers​, deliver nutrition education, inspire volunteerism that excites the imagination and feeds families, and engage leaders who wish to make a positive impact in rural food desert regions.

Cross Creek Hydroponics Mission Statement:

BUILD opportunities to experience self-sustaining environments through indoor gardens that GROW fresh produce and inspire volunteerism, teamwork, and entrepreneurship as they LEARN methods toward healthy choices and a better quality of life.

















About Me and my Why.

From a corporate environment in the Technology industry to the Foothills of North Carolina and along the Appalachian Trail came a vision for this mission.

In overgrown yet thriving greenhouses on Cross Creek Road atop the Blue Ridge Plateau, we began self-taught hydroponic methods to grow year-round in every rural and urban food desert region.

Once the first education center was launched in Elkin NC we quickly learned the importance of not just BUILD and GROW but offering opportunities for hands-on experience to LEARN about the goodness of healthy foods.

Growing food without soil has solved many of the world’s hunger problems making fresh food available in places where it was previously not possible… What we do to do is help bring this method to any Main Street in Everytown.

Today our pleasure is working with community missions, public, private and parochial schools, civic organizations, local businesses, and corporate leaders … all of who have the same passion to provide for those who seek healthier life choices but may lack immediate resources.

Our Work


Support our initiative with Fresh Food for Children Project, providing hands-on opportunities for youth to participate in growing, harvesting and the joy of cooking simple meals, that in-turn creates healthy lifestyle changes.

We work hand-in-hand with schools, local outreach and community leaders to transform abandoned buildings and overgrown landscapes into beautiful gardens and small farms that feed and educate so many children living in food-insecure households.

This campaign joins 50 Friends in a $50/month commitment to launch several of our community-led projects in rural food desert areas from SW Ohio to Appalachian regions of North Carolina.
