Smart Home at Museum of Science and Industry

Posted by Nancy Kreith -

The University of Illinois Extension is partnering with the Museum of Science and Industry to design, plant and maintain a sustainable vegetable garden as a part of the 2,500 square-foot sustainable "green" home exhibit: Smart Home: Green + Wired.

Guests will be able to view the latest innovations in reusable resources; smart energy consumption; sustainable gardens and green roofs; and clean, healthy-living environments in a contemporary setting.

The exhibit will run from May 8 through January 4, 2009. The home was conceived by Michelle Kaufmann Designs. The garden will be planted and maintained by Master Gardeners. Master Gardeners will also be on-site throughout the growing season to answer questions.
