A thriving, sustainable community.


Smith Mill Works is a truly unique, collaborative community of creative entrepreneurs, including multiple growers, manufacturers and service providers dedicated to local sustainable business. We have a wide variety of businesses onsite, including the L.O.T.U.S (Living Only Through Urban Sustainability) Farm and Garden demonstration greenhouse, Mother Earth Produce, an organic grocery delivery service and Sunburst Chef and Farmer, a specialty produce growing operation for the cities best restaurants.

Over 400 lights on the facility converted from incandescent to LED, each saving an average of 50 watts (20,000 watts less energy usage than before)

Smith Mill Works has put over 50,000 square ft of greenhouse space into production without building a single building, reducing our carbon footprint.

Our tenants service over 400 Asheville households and 60 restaurants on a weekly basis, bolstering the local economy and small business community.

We nuture partnerships with local entrepreneurs that follow sustainable-focused values and practices.
We believe this collaboration of community within Smith Mill Works of like-minded, local business folks facilitates and accelerates growth, both individually and collectively. The result is a more dynamic and creative workplace and environment.

New SMW website launched and moving forward

SMW we have only scratched the surface of all of the potential collaborations that our diverse community will allow us. Regular community gatherings and speaking engagements with community leaders in the sustainability and agricultural fields. Development of a Incubator program for food based-businesses
.

Space for interaction with the greater community including space for events, teaching, tours, and maybe even a winter farmers market. A food production facility for the creation of value added products.

A true farm to table restaurant where you can see the greenhouse your food was grown in.
