Serving Up Local, Year Round

PROJECT STATUS: INSTALLED AUGUST 2018; FIRST HARVESTED IN NOVEMBER 2018

The University of Ottawa has partnered with The Growcer to serve hyper-local produce on campus. Students and staff can now see exactly where their produce is coming from – a hydroponic farm right outside their dining hall on campus.

University of Ottawa is only the first step, Chartwells Canada has partnered with the Growcer to deploy its smart farming solution on postsecondary campuses nationally. Chartwells has also pledged to donate 10% of all annual crops to tackle local food insecurity!
