A Model for Urban Agriculture
November 12, 2010
My son was fortunate enough to intern at Growing Power in Milwaukee this past summer, and I had the opportunity to tour the facility. It’s not perfect, it’s a work in progress, kind of coming together all at once, and you can definitely see lots of opportunities to improve on the basic model. In fact, the idea is being exported to cities throughout the rust belt and beyond – food for people, grown in their communities, solving problems of nutrition, global climate, urban blight, and self determination.
