Will Allen recounts his career change from a former professional basketball player and executive at Proctor and Gamble to urban farmer. In 1993, Mr. Allen bought a two-acre plot of land in close proximity to Milwaukee’s biggest housing project. From this initial purchase, Mr. Allen created an urban farm that now grows forty tons of vegetables and raises 100,000 fish that can feed ten thousand people a year. Will Allen talked about the work of his organization, Growing Power, in developing community food systems to allow everyone access to fresh, safe, affordable and nutritious foods. The program opened with a video. Mr. Allen showed slides during his presentation and then responded to questions from members of the audience at Boswell Book Company in Milwaukee. close
