Workers sort, cut and package basil leaves at FarmedHere, an indoor vertical farm in Bedford Park, Ill. The farm, in an old warehouse, has crops that include basil, arugula and microgreens, sold at grocery stores in Chicago and its suburbs. After it is packaged, the basil and other greens are taken directly to stores early the next morning.
