Online PR News – 06-July-2011 – – An ongoing documentary project and web series called "A Sustainable Reality: Redefining Roots" that focuses on the key areas of sustainable indoor gardening is a fundraising effort that was recently launched. These attempts are being made to focus on a facility that is referred to as ‘The Plant’ that is based in Chicago. The goal of this ongoing is to raise at least $11,000 to redefine and restructure the concept of food production to enhance sustainability by farming indoors using a grow box and hydroponics systems. Funds raised will go toward purchasing film equipment such as tripods, mounts, lenses, wireless microphones, a DSLR, compact flash cards, and terabytes of storage for the footage.
In the long-term, the people behind the project hope to expand the scope beyond Chicago and the Mid-West and even to other states and eventually around the world. John Edel, the director of “The Plant”, leads his small crew on a mission to reimagine the current models of sustainability in urban settings. His plan is to transform long-abandoned decrepit buildings into spaces where visionaries can collectively work on sustainability projects. The project also aims to document and unite a number of individual and community grow projects to create a sustainable hub through donations and the project has already begun with the crew documenting the real-time metamorphosis of the south side of Chicago Peer Foods packing facility into a totally self-sustainable facility of no waste that also has a microbrewery, a fish hatchery, and a vertical garden.
The Chicago based sustainable manufacturing center Bubbly Dynamics was created to revitalize the health of all the cities and involves focusing on using modern technology to come up with ways to redefine the future of sustainable farming at the community level. For the benefit of the public, the entire progress of the project will be documented on video to make it easier to replicate their achievements.
