THE GROWING POWER
GOOD FOOD REVOLUTION 5K RUN/WALK
running shoes and join us for this community celebration and Growing
Power fundraiser! Proceeds will go to support Growing Power and the
development of urban agriculture and small farms in the Milwaukee area.
Money will be used to provide scholarships for training and to support
the infrastructure needed to grow food in Milwaukee year round.
The route will run past Growing Power and the Westlawn Community
Garden, which is a partnership between Growing Power and the Housing
Authority of the City of Milwaukee. We hope to serve as an example for
our surrounding neighborhood that good food is important, and together
we can create a healthier, and more sustainable local food system.

Power Trainings and Workshops:
From the Ground
Up! Workshops and our new Aquaponics Workshops are
intensive, hands-on trainings offering diverse groups the opportunity
to learn, plan, develop, operate, and sustain community food projects.
Project participants leave the workshop with improved skills that they
can take back into their communities and pass on to others. These
workshops are for both rural and urban projects.
