Out of the box thinking at Acadia

by Noiles, Jodie


Wolfville, NS - Out of the box thinking at Acadia and Acadia Dining Services is actually a Farm Inside a Box! This hydroponic farm, called a Growcer, is housed in a repurposed shipping container. The Growcer is a Canadian student-lead business initiative servicing campuses across Canada and is the first of it's kind for a post-secondary campus in Atlantic Canada. The hydroponic farm is located behind Wheelock Dining Hall and operated by Chartwells and will provide produce and herbs for students at Acadia year-round.
