Case Study: Promoting Nourishment and Emotional Wellbeing
Highlights from the 2020 engagement with The Roof Crop include:
- Offered summer CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) boxes to tenants for purchase
- Hosted an outdoor pop-up market at each building during the fall featuring eggs, vegetables, and assorted apothecary items
- Provided move-in gifts to residents featuring local honey, salts, and herbal sprays
Green Cities also partnered with LulaFit, a local and women-owned company offering holistic wellness programs, to bring virtual wellbeing resources to tenants across the Chicago portfolio.
With LulaFit, residents had access to an accessible, online wellness platform with daily live-streamed classes, ondemand fitness, virtual events, and other healthy lifestyle resources. 200 W. Adams hosted monthly, complimentary meditation classes.
In addition, EMME Chicago partnered with its retail tenant, Train Moment, to
host outdoor fitness classes exclusively for residents, providing an opportunity
for physical fitness while also supporting Train Moment’s small business.
