It's funny that Pam mentioned Growing Power here. I had seen some of Will Allen's YouTube videos but didn't know the name of his organization when I posted this thread. Two days later I was writing an article on Will Allen and Growing Power after doing some Internet searches for urban farming and aquaponics.

What Growing Power has done could well be used as bargaining chip when dealing with city bureaucrats. Although (I believe)it's a registered non profit, it is very definitely tied to Will Allen in everyone's mind, I think, and there's nothing to say that you can't get a very satisfactory stipend as the head honcho if such things are set up properly.
