name of page and person[edit]

I always see the man referred to as Will Allen, never Willie Allen. I think this has probably prevented people from finding this page before. I propose it be changed.

In a somewhat separate issue, is Will Allen still known best for being a basketball player? This was surely the case a few decades ago, but it seems now he is more famous as an urban farmer/the leader of Growing Power. Will Allen (urban farmer) is available.--Hraefen Talk 19:52, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

I've moved the page. I agree, he's probably better known as a farmer. His pro basketball career was rather short. Zagalejo^^^ 23:37, 23 August 2009 (UTC)


WikiProjects[edit]

I'm thinking this page should also go into the WikiProjects for Agriculture and Horticulture and Gardening. Especially given the above discussion that Allen's more important to urban farming than he is to the history of basketball. Possibly the WP for Wisconsin, too. Thoughts?
