Welcome to Groundwork Denver!
We partner with lower-income communities to improve the physical environment and promote health and well-being. We are “doers”, not “talkers”. We plant trees, we improve parks, we clean up rivers and the air, we insulate houses, we promote biking, we grow food, and we coordinate hundreds of volunteers to help. We support the growth and development of leaders from the neighborhoods where we work through our Green Team youth employment and leadership program. We build bridges between residents, businesses and government to achieve the common goal of positive environmental change. Our work promotes the inclusion of the diverse population of our communities in decision-making and action, as well as advocates for equal access to a clean and healthy environment for everyone.
