BUILDING COMMUNITY ONE VACANT LOT AT A TIME…

The Urban Tree Connection (UTC) is a 501(c)(3) community-based organization, and our mission is to work with residents in Philadelphia’s historically marginalized urban communities to transform abandoned open spaces into safe and functional places that inspire and promote positive human interaction.

Over the last two decades, we have partnered with residents of West Philadelphia's Haddington neighborhood to develop and sustain community-driven greening and gardening projects. Our network of garden and farm sites are spaces for communal growing, gathering and education that fosters deep community engagement and leadership development of residents all ages, to build healthy sustainable community.
