Growing Power

Growing Power is a two-acre urban farm in Milwauke. It was conceived by Will Allen, who recently won a MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Grant for his efforts. The farm produces over $500,000 worth of affordable produce, meat and fish. Says Allen: “I’d like to see Growing Power transform itself into a five-story vertical building being totally off the grid with renewable energy.”
