Workshop on Sept. 10 – FOOD: A Path to Healthy and Sustainable Communities
UIC’s Midwest Latino Health Research, Training & Policy Center will be hosting a workshop, “FOOD: A Path to Healthy and Sustainable Communities.” The workshop will feature a case study on FarmedHere by Paul Hardej.
FarmedHere® produce is grown indoors in urban facilities, away from the bugs, diseases, pesticides, and weather that impact most produce today. The vertical growing technology and local distribution methods reduce energy use, travel time and costs tremendously, making this model one of the most sustainable ways to guarantee access to fresh, healthy produce in city centers, in any season. On average a head of lettuce travels 1,200 miles to reach your plate, our greens travel just across Chicago, which is why they’re the freshest. For more information visit http://farmedhere.com/.
