Nature's Little Recyclers Partners with Geek Bar Beta for "Science of Sustainability" Special Event

Hyper-local and Heritage food items featured in "Sustainability" event and dinner.

Chicago, IL, June 20, 2015 --( Nature's Little Recyclers, the Back of the Yards based urban vermiculture pioneers, are headlining an evening of exciting, and delicious, local “sustainable” products, in a dinner designed by Geek Bar Beta's chef Joshua Mutchnick.

The “Science of Sustainability” event is taking place on Sunday, June 21st, at 4:00pm, at 1941 W. North Avenue in Chicago. Tickets are available for $40 each at

The evening both celebrates and features new trends in local, urban, and organic agriculture, from the main course, pork from a “heritage” pig that was raised in open fields and fed acorns at the Circle Lazy K Ranch, to mushrooms grown in Chicago's first “vertical farm,” The Plant, “heirloom” garlic from St. Louis' Gateway Garlic Urban Farm, produce from the south side's Eden Place Farm and Otis Fresh Market, and fruit from Autumn Berry Inspired.

Chef Mutchnick is developing a unique 4-course meal that will highlight the special ingredients brought together for this event, many of which were raised specifically for the dinner, from the pig to locally-grown microgreens and several types of seldom-seen heirloom tomatoes.

Not only will attendees be able to dine on these delicacies, many of the people involved in growing the ingredients will be there to speak about how their various systems are bringing old food stocks back to the table, creating farms in the city, and adapting urban environments for fresh, healthy, foods.
