Make sure you check out The Plant in the Back of the Yards neighborhood of Chicago!
WJW had the pleasure to tour a local urban farm called The Plant.
The Plant is an innovative food business incubator and vertical farm located in a former pork processing facility. Jackie Weise, The Plant’s Auxiliary Board President, led WJW on a tour around the adaptively reused industrial building. She showed us the technology behind the closed-loop model of material reuse and energy conservation, the various tenants, ranging from Whiner Beer Company to Pleasant House Bakery, and explained how they all work together to reduce waste.
