Urban farming

In Milwaukee Wisconsin there is a hugely successful urban farm. It's very inspiring to me because it's in the heart of the city. It's creator, Will Allen, a former NFL player, is surely a genius. In fact, he is only the second farmer to ever win the $500,000 MacArthur Fellows Grant. And with that grant he is going to turn the farm into a five story energy independent farm. This is the stuff of the future!! Feeding enormous amounts of people on small acerage. Sustainable living in the city. He uses compost and worms and fishes and all the latest research to produce high quality produce. I would love to participate in the intensive internship available to those wanting to start a similar project in other cities. Will Allen is my hero.
