Growing Power

Founded in 1993, Growing Power, Inc. is a nonprofit organization focused on helping ensure equal access to healthy, high-quality, safe, and affordable food. To do so, it provides hands-on training, on-the-ground demonstrations, and technical assistance—all of which is geared to help people grow, process, market, and distribute food in a sustainable manner. Headquartered in Milwaukee, Growing Power also has multiple farm sites in Wisconsin and Illinois. Its Milwaukee headquarters is the last remaining farm and greenhouse in the City of Milwaukee and includes 20,000 plants and vegetables, thousands of fish, a livestock inventory of chickens, goats, ducks, rabbits, and bees, and a retail store that sells produce, meat, worm castings, and compost to the community. The organization also distributes more than 300 market baskets a week to area residents and sells its products to 50 restaurants, caterers, and other food suppliers.
