Get to know Chris Corkery at the Marquette University Law School, Nov. 16 

Join the Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education on Thursday, Nov. 16, as Derek Mosley, director of the Lubar Center, welcomes Chris Corkery, founder/CEO of Hundred Acre. Inc., as part of the “Get to Know” series. The program will begin at 12:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall.

Corkery invested in revitalizing distressed areas by creating Hundred Acre, an urban hydroponic farm in Century City, near 31st and Capitol, in the heart of Milwaukee. The 5,000-square-foot farm produces a year-round harvest of 50,000 pounds of produce for Milwaukee-area restaurants, grocers and university dining services. 

As Mosley has explained, the “Get to Know” series is intended to be “more late-night talk show than ‘Meet the Press.’” The program will include lunch, conversation and community. Register here to attend.
