Launched in 2007, Re:Vision aims to work with people in Denver’s economically marginalized neighborhoods to develop resident leaders, cultivate community food systems, and build a locally-owned economy.  Through its Backyard Gardens program, it provides low-income families with the resources and technical assistance needed to create high-production organic vegetable gardens.  The nonprofit also runs a community urban farm, which includes a greenhouse, fruit orchard, demonstration beehive, and over 10,000 square feet of production beds.  To empower people to choose healthier food, in 2015 it built a new educational kitchen space to support cooking, nutrition, and food preservation classes for community members.  It is now working with community residents to develop a member-owned and operated grocery store in Westwood, a current food desert.
