The Westwood Revolution: How One of the Largest Community-Led Urban Agriculture Programs in the U.S. Created a Self-Sustaining Startup Ecosystem

How do you build an economy from the ground up? That is the story of the predominantly Hispanic Westwood neighborhood, just minutes from downtown Denver. Non-profit Re:Vision began planting (literal) seeds in the community to tackle food access through backyard gardens owned by residents. The program has generated over 75,000 pounds of organically grown produce, a thriving culinary incubator for entrepreneurs, a local grocery store, and a community space for local artists, including classes and events. This investment sparked a movement of innovative start-up activity. Our panel brings four dynamic community members together to share their story of creating resilient communities and an economic hub for the neighborhood.
