Will Allen is a hero to many, including me. Now a
pioneering urban farmer and MacArthur “Genius Award” winner, in 1993 Allen left his corporate job to take up farming in a poor Milwaukee neighborhood. He created Growing Power, Inc., which has become a national nonprofit that trains others around the country and the world in sustainable
farming techniques that can be used in urban and rural areas. In his new book, Allen points the way to building a new food system that can feed—and heal—broken communities.
