Will Allen has worn many hats in his lifetime. The son of a sharecropper, he founded his urban farming foundation Growing Power in 1993 after a brief career in professional basketball, going on to earn a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship and a spot on Time magazine's Top 100 of 2010 list. From Milwaukee to Chicago, his city farms thrive, tended by a volunteer team of all ages who gain the all-too-uncommon satisfaction of knowing the "who, when, where, and how" of their vegetables’ origins. Besides providing the seeds, tools, and educational resources to green the thumbs of any willing student, the farms also foster community bonds by filling the pantries of select local restaurants and locavore squirrels.

The professional painters and maintenance crew of House Doctors remedy domicile ailments with a panoply of handyman services. Chromatic commandos arrive armed with brushes and protective cloth to coat all bland vertical surfaces of a room up to 12 x15’. Customers must provide their own paint, purchase Sherwin-Williams paint from House Doctors ($45/gal.), or hire neighborhood kids with paintball guns to create a shrine to Jackson Pollock. This Groupon includes a recoloring of walls, although ceilings ($125), trim, frames, and baseboards may be added for an additional fee. Upon completion, clients sign off by speaking with a customer-support rep to ensure that they are as satisfied as a grizzly bear adorning his paws in salmon lures.
Husband-and-wife team Molly and Kerry Lovell fortify homes’ structures and beautify their exteriors with services honed by more than 25 years of industry experience.

Together with a hand-selected roster of tradespeople—including Molly’s brother, a master tile setter of 30 years—the Lovells venture into homes and battle disrepair. The fully insured and licensed team of wood, fabric, and metal manipulators travels from home to home strengthening pipework and paint jobs after drafting a free estimate whenever possible.
