Urban Growers Collective (UGC) is built upon the foundation of Growing Power, an NGO and land trust established in Milwaukee in 1993. Growing Power operated its urban farming and education non-profit for 25 years before closing its doors in the fall of 2017. Will Allen, Growing Power’s founder and CEO, inspired thousands of visitors annually – allowing people to see first-hand how local food centres can transform a community and inspire the “Good Food Revolution”.
