Romaine lettuce and assorted other greens are growing inside on a brisk fall day in Wolfville. A shipping container that has been repurposed as a hydroponic growing area for greens and micro greens, is located not far from the doors of Acadia’s Wheelock dining hall, where the greens are destined for use in the dining hall or for catering by Chartwells, the university’s food service provider.
