The Plant, Chicago


Learning about the Able Project and other projects that focus on using waste as a resource in this week’s lecture reminded me of The Plant, a vertical farm in Chicago. The Plant is housed in an old meat-packing warehouse and also includes an aquaponics farm. This facility runs its indoor grow lights via an anaerobic digester, which consumes food waste produced in The Plant and by neighboring manufacturers.

Here's a brief video about The Plant: http://vimeo.com/16093870
