The Plant is a a new kind of organization in a very old building. We’re working to show what truly sustainable food production and economic development looks like by farming inside an old meatpacking facility, incubating small craft food businesses, brewing beer and kombucha, and doing it all using only renewable energy that we make onsite. By connecting outputs of one business to the inputs of another, we are harnessing value from materials that most people would throw away. Feel free to take a look around: get a general overview of The Plant and learn more from our FAQ, or come by for a tour or to volunteer. We’re glad you’re here!
All public tours this Thursday, November 28 will be cancelled for some much needed feasting and family time. We will return on Saturday at 2pm for our regularly scheduled tour.
