Plant Chicago: Developing local circular economies

The Plant – a collaborative community of small food businesses in Chicago – is showing what sustainable food production and economic development looks like by growing and producing food inside an repurposed industrial building.

Founded on a model of closing waste, resource, and energy loops, The Plant currently houses over a dozen small businesses, including indoor and outdoor farms, kombucha and beer breweries, a bakery, a cheese distributor, a coffee roaster, and other emerging food producers and distributors.

Plant Chicago’s mission is to develop local circular economies. It also holds classes, workshops and more educational programming that explore circular economy principles.
