GTECH transforms vacant or blighted properties into viable community economic development opportunities by reclaiming sites and employing green redevelopment strategies to revive and recover the land.  GTECH reduces urban decay by employing low-cost, high impact environmental strategies on single sites and large development corridors, bridging the gap between blight and redevelopment on vacant land.  

GTECH's Urban Revitalization Program helps to transform blighted vacant lots into productive community assets. We work with community groups to assess, plan and implement transitional strategies, like sunflower gardens, while working toward a sustainable, long-term productive reuse for each site.

Each GTECH reclamation project leverages additional resources, helping to improve environmental conditions in communities while integrating green job training as a means of transitioning problematic spaces into productive places in benefit of community.

Our sunflower gardens take more than just sun and water to grow into success.
