Chicago, IL, February 28, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Chicago's premier “green-tech” incubator space, The Plant, is the site of Nature's Little Recyclers' “An Evening With The Worms” event on Friday, March 1st, from 4:00 to 8:00 pm. This is both to announce the launch of their "urban vermiculture project" being developed at The Plant, and to be an opportunity for networking and open dialog between those involved in the new urban agriculture movement, government representatives, members of the investor community, and the media.
Our city is at the forefront of the move to transform abandoned and unused areas from unproductive eyesores into a source of fresh local produce, jobs, and tax revenues. Several current examples, such as Resource Center's extremely successful “City Farm”, are already in operation, and the very ambitious “District” has been announced to develop 13 square miles worth of now-empty blocks across the South Side into small entrepreneurial farms.
The evening will feature talks by a number of project leaders involved with The Plant, plus guest speakers from other "urban agriculture" and green-tech ventures. Additionally, there will be samplings of greens being produced at The Plant, as well as some locally-made breads, jams, and other treats.
