Growing Power

Will Allen is a down-home visionary,
working with soil, sunshine, water, and seeds
to grow quality food for the community:
remember, we are what we eat!

Growing Power, growing by the hour…
uh-huh, growing vegetables and flowers…
I say, Hooray! for Growing Power:

Will used to play pro basketball…
now he keeps busy feeding us all,
organic vegetables free from pesticides,
food you can serve your family with pride!

Growing Power, growing by the hour…
uh-huh, growing vegetables and flowers…
I say, Hooray! for Growing Power:

Area restaurants donate kitchen waste,
and likewise, so do some breweries…
it’s all fed to worms in compost bins,
who turn it into the best soil you’ve ever seen!

You can spread that compost on vacant lots,
‘til it’s a foot and a half deep, then stop,
and put the plants directly in:
presto! instant Garden of Eden!

There’s much more to say about various things,
for example, aquaculture is amazing,
so come on out to 55th and Silver Spring,
on the Northwest side of beautiful Milwaukee.

Growing Power, growing by the hour…
uh-huh, growing vegetables and flowers…
I say, Hooray! for Growing Power:
