Growing Our Own Leafy Greens and Fresh Herbs
Mean Greens is home to a hydroponic garden built inside a specially-designed, upcycled freight trailer behind the dining hall. Five to eleven different varieties of lettuce and herbs grow at any given time in the container, allowing UNT Dining to produce up to 800 heads a week for Mean Greens and other dining halls on campus. All on about one gallon of water per day. The Mean Greens Farm drastically reduces food shipments and produces organic, non-GMO greens with superior flavor.
