Will Allen’s Good Food Revolution, hosted by the Women’s Environmental Institute (WEI),will be in Minnesota October 22-24, 2010.
Will Allen, MacArthur Genius Fellow and one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People will participate in a weekend training on how to grow sustainable, local, fresh, healthy food for and within all communities. Allen and the Growing Power staff from Milwaukee will be at the WEI farm campus on Amador Hill in Almelund, MN throughout the weekend of October 23-24 guiding workshops and answering questions and providing an opportunity for developing organic farming skills. Growing Power Inc. in Milwaukee is a large urban farm operation working in collaboration with local small rural farms to produce healthy, affordable, fresh and local food for inner city and impoverished communities. This work is guided by Allen’s belief that we cannot have healthy communities without a healthy food system and we are all the community farmers on small plots of Earth who can make this happen.
