This is just a fangirl post. Will Allen is the Joel Salatin of urban farming, often cited/referenced, never duplicated.
He brings a wonderful sense of practicality to his desire to help support his community that is simply amazing in the urban farming space, which is laden with, well, impracticality. He is pretty neat and he is going to be in MY TOWN WOO.
Sadly, I can’t go tomorrow or when he’s at Focus on Farming. But it’s so cool to know he’s come down to visit us in Northern Cascadia.
Growing Power, site describing their work, including their non-urban farming efforts.

He’s worth seeing!
