  • The Plant
    Plant Chicago is an educational nonprofit providing tours of The Plant, a 95,000-square-foot former meatpacking plant repurposed into a sustainable food hub. During tours, visitors learn about indoor and outdoor farms, composting, and urban agriculture experiments, and receive an overview of The Plant's closed-loop systems. Visitors also witness the installation of The Plant's massive anaerobic digester which will eventually process over 30 tons of food waste per day, generating renewable heat and electricity for the building. Additionally, on Saturdays, Plant Chicago operates a farmers market and farmstand in its outdoor farmspace that offers a variety of produce, food, and goods, including many local and organic options.

  • Chicago Indoor Sports
    Chicago Indoor Sports' full-size field has enough turf to make a cow's spots turn green with envy. But that same animal would be disappointed if it took a bite. The surface is actually a carefully designed, imitation grass made of millions of tiny rubber pallets and a crushed stone base, which helps absorb shock. That last feature is key, since the indoor play area supports crowds of running athletes during competitive or casual games of soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, and ultimate frisbee. The field is also home its own youth and adult soccer leagues, such as Liga Latino Americana. Throughout many of their services, Chicago Indoor Sports places special emphasis on children. During their SoccerTots and SoccerTouch programs, instructors use soccer as a way to build motor skills and encourage mental development. Meanwhile, an arcade and three giant inflatables give kids a break from sports.
