THE GOOD FOOD REVOLUTION
Urban Farming: Restoring the Soil, Restoring the Soul
Allen chronicles his struggle to transform runndown land in one of Milwaukee’s poorest neighborhoods into a thriving urban farm that provides fresh food for local people.
He succeeds but faces many obstacles: cash flow, broken & abandoned greenhouses, mistakes, failures and setbacks. Worms are a big part of the story of restoring used up patches of land in inner cities.
His goal is to get good food to the people who need it most; the people who cannot afford Whole Foods. For nearly 20 years, Will Allen has been growing good food in communities that have little access.
Inspirational, and a good blueprint for others contemplating the sae endeavor.
