Eating Your Education!

An exciting harvest took place on campus last week at the K.C. Irving Environmental Science Centre. Student research assistants and staff from the Acadia Community Farm harvested lettuce grown hydroponically as part of a research project with Dr. Martin Tango from the Acadia University Ivan Curry School of Engineering, colleagues at the Nova Scotia Community College – NSCC and Nova Aquaponics. The produce was delivered to Chartwells at Acadia University  Wheelock dining hall and the Wolfville and Area Food Bank. #Eatingyoureducation at Acadia!

The Acadia Community Farm began in the spring of 2008 with the vision of providing local, organic produce to the dining hall at Acadia University, while also serving as a community garden. The Farm has grown to become an educational community centre for the exchange of knowledge surrounding gardening, food, and sustainable agriculture.
