Review for Re:Vision, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Growing up in Denver, with roots several generations deep in the Westwood neighborhood, I have been able to personally see the impact that ReVision has had on this Denver neighborhood. Their efforts to understand, leverage, and enhance the practices of the neighborhood makes ReVision stand out as an exceptional nonprofit.

Professionally, I am interested in learning in out-of-school contexts. ReVision's work in the community is a wonderful example of how learning transpires in everyday settings. In Westwood, the practice of growing healthy food is an entry point into larger efforts to understand and respond to the needs of the community members, which are complex, dynamic, and challenging. ReVision's work is strengthening community by enhancing and growing social, financial, and educational networks. This nonprofit confronts societal issues- those of spatial and social inequities- that we all should be talking more about.

Re:vision is working with community members to address access to food. As part of a larger social movement of local foods, RI draws upon ideals of sustainability, community empowerment, and a vision towards a better future on both a local and global scale. Their promotora model builds upon community knowledge and expertise, providing families with access to healthy foods. Gardening is an entry point into community organizing, changing networks, and expansive learning.
