HOME GR/OWN in Milwaukee

HOME GR/OWN re-imagines how urban liabilities, like vacant lots, can be transformed into assets that increase the availability and demand for healthy foods, thereby improving health, supplementing incomes through new job opportunities in the city's local food supply chain, and creating useful, safe public spaces in unsafe and disconnected neighborhoods.

The City of Milwaukee's HOME GR/OWN initiative is a holistic, place-based approach to neighborhood revitalization. It helps reach multiple sustainability targets in a single neighborhood, to the benefit of a more sustainable community.
