Students have created a vertical hydroponic community garden in the back of our science lab. This farm is used to learn about the structure and function of plants as well as the footprint of growing various species of vegetables. Students create and code various sensor/actuator systems using Raspberry Pi and Arduino. These are used to collect data related to plant health, monitor resource consumption, and adjust system parameters to help maximize crop yield. Data is shared with both national and international lab partners to help better understand the future of growing food. Harvests have been used in farm to table celebrations within the building as well as donations to local food pantries.
