The University of the District of Columbia is leading the charge to transform the food system in our nation’s capital.
This university’s aeroponic garden grows more than 2,640 plants in just 1,200 square feet, and uses 90 percent less water than conventional growing methods. It is used to teach chefs about biodiversity and different flavor profiles of plants.
