UNT's hydroponic garden grows food for all-vegan Mean Greens Café

Photo by Ranjani GrothUNT's Mean Greens Café, the first all-vegan dining hall in the nation, has installed a hydroponic garden -- the first of more to come -- built into a specially designed refurbished freight trailer behind the dining hall. Five to 11 different varieties of lettuce grow at any given time in the container, allowing the university to source up to 800 heads a week for Mean Greens and other dining halls on campus. Peta2 has named UNT to its Dean's List for "making exceptional strides in vegan dining on campus."
