In 1993, Growing Power was an organization with teens
who needed a place to work.
Will Allen was a farmer with land.
designed a program that offered teens an opportunity to work at his store and
renovate the greenhouses to grow food for their community. What started as
a simple partnership to change the landscape of the north side of Milwaukee has
blossomed into a national and global commitment to sustainable food systems.
