Farming from a Meatpacking Factory

with 2 comments

Re-purposing an old meatpacking factory as a zero-waste farm seems pretty ironic. But John Edel has bigger plans than just an eco farm for The Plant, a vertical farm and food business operation opening soon in Chicago. He hopes to “show people the ease of adapting to green food production in urban living environments,” including utilizing hydroponics and aquaponics (CNN). Fantastic concept, John!
