One Man's Dream Of Urban Farming Is Taking U.S. Cities By Storm

May 7, 2015 By Serena Hayes
Often, big-city dwellers are far removed from their food and all that goes into bringing it to the table. Will Allen and the team at Growing Power aims to change that. Allen's organization does more than can be shown in a short video. Since 1993, Growing Power has educated, supported and fed their community. Although they started in Milwaukee, they now have farms in Madison and Merton (in Wisconsin) and Chicago. They've also set up training centers in Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky and Mississippi.

The food and hands-on education shown here is one aspect of Growing Power. They also seek to make a difference in other regions. They have sponsored national food security conferences and provide on-site assistance to other sites nationwide.
