Richard Heinberg – Life After Growth: Why the Economy is Shrinking and What to Do About It from Great Lakes Bioneers Chicago on Vimeo.

What happens when you combine urban agriculture, alternative energy and a food business incubator? Hear how The Plant is repurposing a century old meatpacking facility to explore the intersection of recycling, job creation and local growing. By harnessing food waste, this this 95,000 square-foot vertical farm is shooting for net-zero energy use while recycling waste products, energy and gasses.

Watch this complete plenary from Great Lakes Bioneers Chicago's 2012 event.

John’s most recent endeavor, The Plant, is a project combining adaptive industrial reuse and aquaponics to create the nation’s first vertical farm. Located in a former meatpacking facility in Chicago’s historic Stockyards, The Plant will be powered entirely by the waste of neighboring businesses.

John Edel, Executive Director of Plant Chicago, also is the owner and developer of the Chicago Sustainable Manufacturing Center, a green business incubator in the Stockyards Industrial Corridor. As general contractor, Edel took the facility from a burnt-out shell to 100% occupancy while using a mixture of waste-stream recycled materials and leading-edge technology to make the building energy efficient and non-toxic.
