Hydroponic Garden, Gonzaga University, Spokane, Wash.

Gonzaga University partners with local farmer to create indoor garden.

Dining services already was buying a case of hydroponically grown lettuce per day from the local farmer Stewart Fry so customers were already used to the product by the time the dining room garden was built. Even though the garden is now producing lettuce, the department still buys a case of hydroponic lettuce from the farmer twice a week.
