Will Allen, Milwaukee's Most Famous Working Urban Farmer, Wins Huge Award

Growing Power's Will Allen wins a MacArthur "Genius" award.

This is a major coup for Allen and the Milwaukee healthy food/sustainability/urban ag-and-education movement that he has energized for years.

I think he is the first Milwaukeean to win one of these prestigious grants. Here is his organization's website.

Congratulations are in order. Hooray!

Will Allen is my hero! I first learned about him in FRESH the movie, a film that everyone should see! I hope he runs for Mayor of Milwaukee some day.
