Hydroculture Garden Grows Opportunities at Penn College


No soil? No problem for this garden! Fresh learning opportunities are growing at Penn College, thanks to a hydroculture garden that is serving the needs of landscape/horticulture majors.

Manley, the restaurant’s executive chef – has just been posted to the college’s YouTube channel:
