Join us on a trip to The Plant at 10 AM on Saturday, June 28. This former meat-packing plant in Chicago’s Back of the Yards neighborhood is now the home of three demonstration farms onsite. The farms will eventually be a “closed loop” system that will use food waste composted in an anaerobic digester to create power for The Plant’s renewable energy system.The space is also the home of various food-producing businesses, including Pleasant House Bakery, Arize Kombucha, and Peerless Bread and Jam.
Please note: This field trip is in place of our regular June meeting. Members are free; nonmembers pay $10.
Email Carol Morency at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in going to The Plant. Driving arrangements and directions will be available nearer to the date.
