BRIDGETON — Two new greenhouses at the nonprofit Mill Creek Urban Farm will soon be filled with towering tomato and cucumber plants, grown hydroponically to provide year-round produce to food pantries, senior centers, restaurants and schools.

Built with a $250,000 grant from the TD Charitable Foundation, they officially opened last week. The farm is on the 5-acre site of a former public housing project on Ronald Bowman Way, which used to be called Mill Street.
