An interesting ‘small, local, smart solution’ – maybe one of the world’s shortest commercial supply chains?
On a recent business trip to the Northeast US, I booked a flight that would allow me a long layover at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.
Even though most business travelers run from a layover, I had an ulterior motive.
I wanted to visit the airport’s flagship vertical aeroponic Future Growing® O’Hare urban garden — the world’s first food farm inside an airport terminal. The great thing about visiting this airport farm is that you don’t need a rental car or a hotel room, and you don’t have to go through security again. The farm is centrally located right in the airport at the mezzanine level of Terminal 3, near the entrance to Concourse G.
Even though I had visited the ground-breaking farm that provides chemical-free herbs and vegetables to airport restaurants several times before, I like to stop in from time to time and meet with our farmers personally.
