    The Neighborhood Land Power Project is a nonprofit whose mission is to build a neighborhood rooted food and land system through community leadership development and land based strategies in West Philadelphia.

    Our education programs promote health and wellness, and leadership development; and are rooted in food, land and environmental justice. For adults and families, we host hands-on workshops at our community gardens and farm sites, covering topics such as healthy cooking, sustainable growing methods and medicinal tincture-making. We provide community gardeners with technical assistance, resources (plants, soil, tools), and growing space at our community gardens. UTC also operates a Youth Apprenticeship Program, where we mentor high-school aged youth in urban farming, local food distribution and leadership development.
