US (MN): UMD greenhouse wins farm award

UMD's Land Lab was named one of the top five college farms in the country by Best Value Schools.

This summer, the farm is using a large greenhouse that will help extend its growing season, potentially into November. Inside, they are growing tomatoes in soil and lettuce through hydroponics experiments.

About 90 percent of the food grown at the Land Lab is fed to UMD students, staff and faculty through its Dining Services department.
