PHENND Fellows- Nonprofit Track- Urban Tree Connection
 
 
 
Urban Tree Connection’s mission is to build a neighborhood rooted food and land system through community leadership development and land-based strategies in West Philadelphia. UTC works primarily with residents of West Philadelphia's Haddington neighborhood to develop community-driven greening and gardening projects on vacant land. UTC has partnered with residents to redevelop vacant lots, together, we have repurposed these spaces for communal growing and gathering, sustainable food production and affordable food distribution, and multi-generational community health and wellness education. The overall goal of the VISTA project is to build UTC’s capacity to achieve our mission. The organization recently undertook a strategic planning process, and we are eager to enact our plan and move towards UTC’s long-term goals. The VISTA will play a key role in implementing strategic goals; assessing current programs and identifying key benchmarks to measure program impact; and developing UTC’s branding in order to garner resources, increase external visibility, and grow our community of stakeholders and leaders.
