Growing Power

p3126814

All you members of GLUE – Great Lakes Urban Exchange– may remember hearing (and seeing!) Will Allen and learning about his amazing urban farm, Growing Power, in Milwaukee.

In fact, we at Rust Wire featured some photos from Growing Power back in March.

Now, The New York Times has noticed Allen and the work he is doing.

For those of you not familiar with the project, Growing Power is  “14 greenhouses crammed onto two acres in a working-class neighborhood on Milwaukee’s northwest side, less than half a mile from the city’s largest public-housing project.” It advocates safe, healthy, affordable food for everyone.
