Growing Power - Will Allen's Story of Inspiration

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Milwaukee, WI. - In 1993, Growing Power was an organization with teens that needed a place to work. Will Allen (a 2008 MacArthur Foundation Fellow) was a farmer with land. Allen designed a program that offered teens an opportunity to work at his store and renovate the greenhouses to grow food for their community, along with the farming methods and educational programs that are now the hallmark of the non-profit organization. What started as a simple partnership to change the landscape of the north side of Milwaukee, has blossomed into a national nonprofit organization and land trust with a global commitment to sustainable food systems.
