Description

We will stop at 4 Urban Farms - City Farm, Hull House Kitchen Farm, Windy City Harvest, and finally the Open House at the Plant, Chicago's first off-the-grid vertical farm and food business incubator.  Tours of The Plant are $5.00 (half the usual price).

 between 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. They’ll have:

  • Burgers & brats, veggie burgers & veggie hotdogs, Plant-grown arugula salad, and more! Food is free, but donations are always welcome.
  • Home-brew beer-tasting! Try a brew or two from our hop-happy friends.
  • Tours* every half hour for a suggested donation of $5 (half the regular price!).
  • Good folks, good music, good fun!

Helmets are required for this ride.  Please bring along replacement tube(s) for your bike and a light jacket for yourself.  It may be quite cool in The Plant because it's so well insulated.

This looks pretty sweet.  I'm trying to convince my landlord to let me do a rooftop garden on our building.  Hopefully, they have some information on rooftop/urban gardens I could bring to him. 

Self sustainability is the direction humanity NEEDS to go IMHO.
