March 15, 2012 – Hour 2

Will Allen is a native of Rockville, Maryland, where he grew up on a small farm.  After a career in the NBA, Allen returned to agriculture, but not by heading back to his family farm.  Instead he’s at the forefront of a new movement in urban agriculture called vertical farming, where levels of plants and aquaculture are stacked to maximize productivity on small parcels of inner city land.  He joined us to discuss his organization, Growing Power, and the future of urban farming. Then, Tom Horton celebrates spring on the Delmarva Penninsula.
