Excerpts for Farmer Will Allen and the Growing Table

Is Will Allen done?

"We need fifty million more people growing food
on porches, in pots, in side yard," he says.
Will is always looking for
new ways to make the table bigger—
more schoolyard plots,
a vertical farm that's five stories high,
farms in empty factories or warehouses.

Will Allen dreams of a day when city farms
are as common as streetlights,
and every table is covered with good food.
