There are cities across the country that that have abandoned industrial buildings. What if you could convert those structures to indoor farms?
PlantChicago is a non-profit organization that is converting an old meat packing plant to a vertical farm. This is a brief video about the project.
The goal is to produce food and discover creative ways of using energy and compatible waste. This does not seem to be a buzz word showcase project. The intent is to create a viable business model that could be replicated by other communities.
