- Growing Power's National-International Urban & Small Farm Conference – I had the opportunity to visit Growing Power, which is an urban farm located in Milwaukee last year during the GLUE (Great Lakes Urban Exchange) conference. It was an eye opening visit to learn about food sourcing,urban farming and land use.
