Have you ever wanted to know how we can have delicious, plump tomatoes in the middle of the winter?

Hydroponics can allow for hyper-local produce in the off-season for produce.

We will be putting together a hydroponics system in the Garden Commons Greenhouse and discussing the advantages and disadvantages to hydroponic farming.

Join us in UofL's organic garden and greenhouse for our group workdays! Learn (by doing) how to grow hyper-local, super-delicious vegetables, herbs, and fruits! Anyone can work in the garden any time, but we'll gather together every Friday throughout the spring semester (Jan. 12 - Apr. 27) from 1pm to 2pm to plant, weed, water, and harvest. No prior experience necessary. Tools & gloves provided. The Garden Commons is open to participation any time from students, staff, faculty, and community members. Everyone who comes is welcome to share in the harvest! Connect with us and get all the details on our Facebook Page.
