Growing Power is a nationwide nonprofit organization and land trust that supports people from diverse backgrounds through the development of community food-growing systems. In addition to cultivating a variety of foods, the organization provides training and outreach programs in which participants learn sustainable practices to grow, process, market and distribute produce. At Green City Market, meet father-daughter farmers Will and Erika Allen, both of whom are rural and urban farmers. Will is executive director of Growing Power and Erika is its Chicago projects manager/development director. In 2008, Will was awarded a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Grant” for his work on urban farming and sustainable food production.
