A few months ago I saw a tiny little business card for a sustainability group here in Chicago. I was dying for some homies that were into sustainable and economical initiative and decided to inquire. I luckily ended up stumbling upon Igloo – an epic learning cooperative created by my friend and fellow life wizard Kyle King. Anyways, we meet every Sunday in Pilsen here in Chicago. Each week Charlie facilitates an amazing discussion about a certain topic pertaining to our local and global sustainable agendas. We’ve talked about local v. organic, waste water management, zero impact, we have learned about zero scaping, we have canned salsa together, and just had really impressive and well thought conversations about our world pertaining to sustainable initiative.
This past Sunday we actually went to Charlie’s casa and helped harvest his summer garden and plant his fall/winter selections! I love being able to work in the dirt and be a part of a community that allows for me to dabble in urban homesteading even though I don’t have the space in my current apartment.
