This member group is empowering neighborhoods to transform blight into community assets through program focused on food, water and jobs. The primary goal for Groundwork Milwaukee (GWM) is to cultivate and introduce grassroots brownfield and other open lands initiatives and improvements in the city currently unaddressed by other greening organizations. GWM works with the Milwaukee community to improve the environment, economy, and quality of life through local action by getting local people, business, government, and other organizations involved in practical and hands-on projects.
