Urban Green Works, restoring the environmental, physical and economic health of under-served communities.
What We Do
At Urban GreenWorks we provide environmental projects and food security programming to under-served urban communities throughout South Florida. Working with high school youth, at-risk young adults, prison inmates, the elderly, college students, and children from pre-k to middle-school, UGW builds urban farms, designs and plants neglected city spaces with native trees, works to increase our urban canopy cover, develops educational curriculum material and school gardens, and brings affordable, fresh food into inner-city neighborhods through farmers markets.
