Honey from home ...

This week, Back of the Yards based “Urban Vermiculture” pioneers Nature’s Little Recyclers* hosted “An Evening With The Worms” to celebrate their successful Seed Chicago Kickstarter fundraiser. Representatives from a wide swath of Chicago’s green tech, urban farming, sustainability, and start-up communities were involved, and despite the somewhat chilly temperatures, a fine outdoor party was...

Posting about composting ...

I had the opportunity over the weekend to attend the Green Metropolis Fair, which was being held at Lake View High School up at Irving Park and Ashland on the city’s north side. I was somewhat surprised at the format of this, with tables running down the halls on two floors and food concessions in... Read more »

A bit from Techweek ...

I was out of town most of last week with my family on a bit of a vacation, so missed most of Techweek, but managed to get back home in time for hanging out down at the Merchandise Mart on Friday. We’d gotten press credentials for Green Tech Chicago early on, and had been contacted... Read more »

A Love Letter to Techweek Chicago

Dear Techweek Chicago, It is not often I fall in love with an event, but your attractions have required me to attend each year. Our relationship is still new, only our fourth year in Chicago. I know you have gone off and seeing other cities, sharing your delights far beyond Chicago. I know New York,... Read more »

A report from One Spark ...

So, the middle of last month, the Nature’s Little Recyclers crew spent a week on the road, heading down to Jacksonville, FL for One Spark. This was way more of a grind than we expected, and we were constantly on the go (trying to drum up votes for our project) from 5:30am till around 10:30pm.... Read more »

Pretty Pictures ...

Went down to the Chicago Cultural Center today for the awards ceremony for the “CITY IN A GARDEN” poster design competition that the City’s Department of Sustainability was running. The contest had two phases, a panel of experts judging the entries, and a popular vote. The judges had previously narrowed the field down to the... Read more »

Road Trip!

Yes, the Green Tech Chicago crew is going on the road and heading down to One Spark – “The World’s Crowdfunding Festival” – in Jacksonville, FL from April 9th-13th. Well, technically we’re sort of tagging along as “alter egos”, as we’ll be there officially shilling for Nature’s Little Recyclers, the “Urban Vermiculture Green Tech Venture”... Read more »

More from the Coalition space ...

When we were down at the Launch Party for Coalition: Loop, their PR reps were trying very hard to set up a series of interviews for us. However, once the party got started, it was a bit of a madhouse, so it was a bit hit-or-miss. Obviously, I got to talk to the guys who... Read more »

A Co-Working Space for "CleanTech".

I don’t know if there’s a “season” for this sort of thing, but it sure seemed like over the winter, there were very few events which were “on topic” for Green Tech Chicago, but all of a sudden, they seem to be picking up again. I’d actually had the Launch Party for Coalition: Loop on... Read more »

Green Education?

Been a while since I’ve had something interesting* for you, however, the Paganics crew (in the persons of the GTC co-authors), were invited to be part of the opening program of the 2014 Job Shadowing outreach of the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences (we were having a bunch of kids come down to learn...
