Bringing seeds to life at Plant Chicago

By Emilie Syberg

At Plant Chicago’s recent Saturday farmer’s market, local organic recycling plant Nature’s Little Recyclers hosted a seed swap. Market attendees, who came to enjoy a craft beer from Whiner Brewery and pick up some vegetables for the week ahead, lingered over seed packets ranging from squash to marigolds. Ed Hubbard, the founder of Nature’s Little Recyclers, compares growing your own food to “magic”.
