Fast Company is out with its annual list of "The 100 Most Creative People in Business," and Milwaukee's own Will Allen is featured at No. 91.

Allen, whose projects have been profiled on recently, is leading the urban farming charge in America and rightfully so receiving large amounts of praise and national exposure.

Allen's Fast Company feature should be online soon and its two-page spread is on pages 104-05 of the June print edition.
