The mission of Groundwork Milwaukee is to bring about the sustained regeneration, improvement and management of the physical environment by developing community-based partnerships that empower people, businesses and organizations to promote environmental, economic and social well-being.


Groundwork Milwaukee is a nonprofit organization and land trust. Our work is primarily done through (1) the transformation of brownfields into community spaces including gardens, orchards, art exhibits, and gathering places; (2) the facilitation of programs that are designed to educate, train, and empower at-risk youth, community members, veterans, and volunteers; and (3) the protection of urban waters through the installation of rain water harvesting structures, the strategic integration of green infrastructure, and habitat restoration for aquatic native species. Our work reflects the objectives of our national chapter Groundwork USA.
