HOME GR/OWN Milwaukee

Launched by Mayor Tom Barrett and led by the City's Office of Environmental Sustainability, HOME GR/OWN Milwaukee helps residents repurpose foreclosed properties for community assets that spark new economic opportunities around local, healthy food production and distribution. To do so, the initiative works within City government to streamline processes, permitting and ordinances to facilitate new food-based entrepreneurship and vacant lot re-purposing, and within community food systems to link local growers to local markets. In 2014, the initiative aims to improve 42 vacant lots.
