Urban Tree Connection

The Urban Tree Connection (UTC) works to build a neighborhood-rooted food and land system through community leadership development and land-based strategies in West Philadelphia. Founded in 1989 and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1997, UTC works with residents of West Philadelphia’s Haddington neighborhood to develop community-driven greening and gardening projects on vacant land. Our aim is to cultivate community leadership, to improve community health and to develop a local, sustainable, and equitable food system.
