The Urban Transformation Network’s mission is to support and encourage the establishment of urban gardens on unused land and space while increasing diversity, raising awareness for conservation education, urban agriculture, and wellness, and inspiring and educating youth, adults and seniors to create an economically sustainable future in their community.
Our Vision and Work
Urban Transformation Network connects people to opportunity so that they may move from stagnant, difficult conditions to vibrant, healthy and productive lifestyles. This includes connecting people to information, training and educational opportunities.
We believe in empowering people and transforming lives. Developing partnerships with community residents, non-profits, governmental agencies, local businesses and international corporations, is the foundation of the Urban Transformation Network.
Urban Transformation Network actively engages the community in educational workshops that raise awareness about: green collar job training opportunities, urban gardening and information on healthy eating and healthy thinking.
