FARMER WILL ALLEN AND THE GROWING TABLE

by | Read by Peter Jay Fernandez

Children Ages 6+ • 18 mins. • Unabridged • © 2013

Can you say "red wiggler worms" in a way that no one will forget? Narrator Peter Jay Fernandez can! He brings drama to the inspirational story of former basketball player and MacArthur award recipient Will Allen and his quest to bring fresh vegetable gardening into the urban setting. Cherishing the gardening, food, and friendship of his childhood, Will has a vision of "city farms as common as street lights and every table covered with good food." Fernandez's voice is firm, and his narration purposeful. He lets questions percolate: "HOW could Will farm in the middle of pavement and parking lots?", for example. Background music and sound effects accompany the story. To complete the production, Allen adds an afterword, and author Jacqueline Briggs Martin shares her thoughts.
