FastCompany Magazine

The official Tumblr of Fast Company.

"Edel was interested in ways of bringing back manufacturing jobs to the city," explains Melanie Hoekstra, director of operations at The Plant. The building is uniquely suited to food production; it contains food-grade materials (these allow for legal and safe food preparation) because of its meatpacking history. Instead of combining farming with other types of manufacturing, The Plant is sticking entirely to food—and lots of it.

    This is amazing! I wonder though, if we traveled 1000 years into the future, whether or not all farming might be like...
