MacArthur Genius Fellow Will Allen is the founder of Growing Power, a 2-acre urban farm in Milwaukee that produces thousands of pounds of healthy food each year for the surrounding low-income neighborhoods.
The internships and workshops hosted by Growing Power engage young adults, often minorities and immigrants, in producing healthy foods for their communities.
His new book, The Good Food Revolution: Growing Healthy Food, People and Communities, outlines how local food systems can strengthen the health and economy of communities across the nation.
