Will Allen is a modern day Revolutionary, in the truest sense!
The term, “Urban Farmer” doesn’t come close to describing the manner
in which his transformative ideas and innovative techniques have changed
the cultivation, production, and delivery of healthy foods to previously
underserved, urban populations.
Since Mr. Allen took over and completely revamped a once struggling nonprofit,
“Growing Power” he has been instrumental in creating sustainable agricultural
and , now, aquaponic concerns around the globe. Under his guidance,
communities are strengthen
when they are taught how to grow their own fruits, vegetables, and fish
in a “limited space”, urban environment.
Will Allen has garnered numerous awards for his creativity and commitment,
including the prestigious MacArthur “Genius” grant in 2008.
He was named in Time Magazine’s 100 most influential individuals in 2010.
