Growing some deeper roots at the Collaborative Farm on Milwaukee's north side

NOW: Growing some deeper roots at the Collaborative Farm on Milwaukee’s north side

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Down on the farm doesn't always mean far from the city. A perfect example of urban farming is happening on a plot of land on Milwaukee's north side with a rich history of growth and now under new ownership.

On CBS 58 Sunday Morning, Michael Schlesinger put Milwaukee’s collaborative farm in the Sunday morning spotlight.

Ultimate Farm Collaborative, at 5500 W. Silver Spring Drive, is a fairly new agriculture-based business.  It’s at the site where Will Allen’s Growing Power used to be.  Farmers use some of the land and greenhouse space as part of a co-op. Food grown here is even sold here.

There’s also a coffee shop and an area for musicians to perform.  The idea is to create multiple forms of revenue to help with funding. There are also opportunities to volunteer.  Click here to learn about all the possibilities at The Collaborative Farm.
