Farmer Will Allen and the Growing Table


Will Allen is no ordinary farmer. A former basketball star, he's as tall as his truck, and he can hold a cabbage, or a basketball, in one hand. But what is most special about Farmer Will is that he can see what others can't see. When he looked at an abandoned city lot, he saw a huge table, big enough to feed the whole world. Not enough space, poor soil and no one to help him were easy problems to solve. Farmer Will is a genius in solving problems, and he does it while also teaching others about food and where it comes from.
