As part of her Chicago Conservation Corps experience, Sarah Cardona planned, designed and hosted a fantastic day-long workshop on many different aspects and kinds of composting. It was a hit! Click here for more details.
The South Loop was one of four Chicago communities partnering on an EPA-funded research project, to learn how well residents could use small, inexpensive air monitors, and how well the monitors worked. We learned a lot about our neighboring communities that deal with environmental justice issues. Click here to learn more about this project.
To promote walking to shop in the community, we partnered with Gordon’s South Loop Ace hardware to offer discounts on shopping carts, and featured a “pop up” walk-to-shop-together event. Click here for more details.
