Wonderful experience and very informative. I will be going back to purchase sustainable food and products from Growing Power.

What You'll Get


Though it takes longer, watching vegetables gradually expand before consuming them is far more satisfying than doing the same to a marshmallow in the microwave. Marvel at the power of nature with this Groupon.

About Growing Power


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.
