University City District – Green City Works

“Green City Works is a social enterprise that provides high quality landscaping services while connecting local community members to good, stable jobs.  We are committed to advancing our services, our labor force and our community through green space improvements.

Green City Works generates revenue that supports University City District’s social mission of changing places and changing lives. This venture provides UCD with the opportunity to train and serve those with the highest barriers to employment, including the formerly incarcerated. UCD is dedicated to being an exemplar employer in the landscaping industry by committing to good wages and benefits, full time positions, and skill building and advancement opportunities.  In addition, GCW strives to be a ‘good neighbor,’ by giving back to the community through an annual landscaping project for local non-profits and schools.”
