THE GROWING POWER GOOD FOOD REVOLUTION 5K RUN/WALK

Put on your 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.

Growing 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.
