Milwaukee Urban Gardens
According to its mission statement, Milwaukee Urban Gardens protects plots around the city from development and shares them with locals "to enhance the quality of life." And it's not just the savory oxygen generated by the plants that bolsters the quality of life; it's the opportunities these gardens provide for neighbors of diverse backgrounds to work side-by-side nurturing their favorite herbs, flowers, and vegetables—as well as the beauty they lend to the area. This nonprofit land trust looks after a total of 45 parcels of land located in Riverwest, Bay View, northern Harambee, and the Northwest side.
