Mission:
Revision International is a nonprofit organization based in Denver, CO. We work to transform neighborhoods into sustainable, healthy, and thriving communities by cultivating local leaders to develop resident-led sustainability initiatives.

Our mission is to educate, inspire, connect, and empower individuals and communities to achieve transformational change through locally created, scalable models that contribute to global sustainability.
Results:
We've helped over 200 low-income families learn how to grow organic vegetables in the backyard, providing them with the skills and resources to become healthy and self-sufficient. We have also helped 40 Somali Bantu refugee families start a 1.5 acre urban farm where they are reconnecting to their ancestral roots and farming for the first time in over 20 years. Additionally, we are working to launch a community food cooperative that will aggregate, process, market and sell food grown by coop members.
