Remembering Kevin Pierce

The local urban agriculture and sustainability community in Chicago mourns the death of one of its most knowledgeable, passionate and dedicated leaders.  Kevin Pierce was a long-time architect and sustainability designer, retiring from Shaw Environmental in July 2011 to become the Chief Operating Officer of the Resource Center Chicago, on which he served as a board member for a number of years. He was also a past member of the Advocates for Urban Agriculture (AUA) Steering Committee.  Kevin died May 2, 2013 from brain cancer. He will be sorely missed.
A private ceremony is being scheduled for later in the month. Donations in Kevin’s memory are requested to be made to Resource Center Chicago, 222 East 135th Pl., Chicago, Illinois 60827 (
