The poster at The Plant says: “Start a Revolution: The Plant is a totally new vertical farm with vegetables, fruit, fresh bread, and even beer. These goods are produced and then sold to the community through tenants at The Plant right in the South Side of Chicago. Our tenants are local food growers just like you. Learn about tenancy at The Plant and see what it means to become a part of our community.”
