Growing Power Vertical Farm!

Will Allen, Founder Growing Power Inc.

“I believe it is our privilege and duty to create an urban agricultural training and demonstration site that directly reflects our commitment to sustainability and that will serve as a model for other programs throughout the country” - WILL ALLEN, FOUNDER AND CEO, GROWING POWER

The Vision: Growing Power inspires communities to build sustainable food systems that are equitable and ecologically sound, creating a just world, one food-secure community at a time.

The Mission: Growing Power, Inc. is a non-profit organization and land trust supporting people from diverse backgrounds and the environment in which they live by helping to provide equal access to healthy, high-quality, safe and affordable food. This mission is implemented by providing hands-on training, on-the-ground demonstration, outreach and technical assistance through the development of Community Food Systems that help people grow, process, market and distribute food in a sustainable manner.

The Need: Located on an historic site that hosts the last remaining farm and greenhouse operation in the City of Milwaukee, Growing Power has become a national leader in providing neighborhood-based sustainable agricultural education. As the organization has grown, the need for additional space to support production, classes, meetings, meal preparation, offices, and on-site warehousing has grown exponentially. The construction of a new training center and warehouse facility represents the unique opportunity to meet growing program needs while serving as a model of ecological sustainability.
“I see the decade of 2010 as potentially explosive for what Will Allen calls ‘The Good Food Revolution.’” - JERRY KAUFMAN, BOARD PRESIDENT, GROWING POWER
