To improve the social, economic, and environmental health of distressed and transitional communities by building capacity to reclaim vacant and underutilized land.
What We Do
Grounded uses the process of reclaiming vacant and underutilized land as a platform for engagement, education, and building trust among communities. This "people and places" approach intentionally acknowledges that any physical interventions will need to be sustained by passionate and prepared individuals and that in order for residents to thrive in all aspects of their lives, they must find support, safety, and pride in their physical environment. Our work is often a catalyst for greater change.
