We invite you to our educational session:

Container Farming: Grow Food Anywhere

Friday, July 13 | 8:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.

In eight short weeks, a seedling grew into a healthy organic leafy vegetable inside a shipping container that sits behind a residence hall on the East Carolina University campus. This is ECU’s container farming concept. Grown hydroponically with the right amount of light, ECU is able to produce 500 heads of lettuce, the equivalent of two acres of traditional crops, every five weeks from this one shipping container. In this session, presenters will review the concept of container farming and walk through the requirements and logistics of implementing a container farm on their campus.
