JIMMY FISHBEIN FOR TIME
I was lucky to hear Mr. Allen speak in NYC a few weeks on a WNYC panel about his organization, Growing Power, and his work in Milwaukee. He is an amazing thinker and speaker on the topics of urban farming and food justice. Read more about him at Time. Also there was a good article on him in The New York Times Magazine last year. Read it here.
I profile his daughter Erika Allen and her work in Chicago in my upcoming book.
