The Town Kitchen is committed to creating a thriving community of urban innovators.

Our partners hold a shared vision of creating resilient communities.


I-SEEED

As our non-profit, educational partner, I-SEEED supports The Town Kitchen with the creation of social justice pedagogy.

I-SEEED strives to build an ecosystem of "solutionists" to solve our communities' most pressing social problems. They believe that through innovative economic, educational, environmental design, and cutting edge technology, we can create just and sustainable communities for all.

I-SEEED believes that through deep investments in people, place, systems and structures we can fundamentally transform the built environment -- heal social and environmental trauma -- and provide opportunities for all children and families to reach their full potential.
