Grant Woods and Woods Home Improvements will be volunteering their time and effort to assist the mission of the Oak Park Animal Care League through maintenance and construction work. The first job on the docket was to erect a partition wall with a new door to separate a stairway from the area where the kitties are housed. The goal is to reduce heat and cold drafts coming up the stairway. We can’t wait to see what is next!
The Plant, located at 1400 W. 46th Street in Chicago’s Back of the Yard District on the south side is a labor of love for its owner, John Edel, and the many volunteers and entrepreneurs who are helping to create an amazing model of sustainability and a vision of what’s possible in urban agriculture and community building. Take a look at our slide show to see the work in progress. To find out more about The Plant, follow the address to their website:
