The Chicago Center for Green Technology was once a Brownfield- An illegal dump that stored tons of environmentally harmful waste. However, it is now a leader in how to effectively use natural power such as solar and geothermal energy. Thanks to the kind staff, we were given a tour to help obtain and stimulate ideas we can incorporate into our Ujima Garden Project. While we probably won’t win the L.E.E.D( Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum award, the tour of the CCGT has definitely given all of us some food for thought.
