Hydroponic Garden, Gonzaga University, Spokane, Wash.
Gonzaga University partners with local farmer to create indoor garden.
“The main thing [we learned about hydroponics] was that it produces a consistent product,” Faulkinberry says. “It’s very sustainable. It uses only about 30% of the water that it takes to grow [plants] in soil. It’s very self-contained, and the nutrients come from saline so it’s all natural. [The garden] has really made a big impact on the look of the dining room."
