Renewable Energy And Urban Farming Campus To Be Built In Auburn Gresham

Supported by Ill. Gov. JB Pritzker, the project will house an anaerobic digester and urban farming campus.

A $32 million sustainable redevelopment project is underway for Chicago’s South Side that will house an anaerobic digester and urban farming campus. This effort aims to increase local access for South and West Side residents to healthy foods and green job training.

Reset talks to the leader of the development about the plans for the campus.
