US (GA): 4C Academy Hydroponics Green House set to finish construction on Thanksgiving

The 4C Academy’s Hydroponic Greenhouse started out as an idea amongst students. But now the idea is coming to life. “It’ll be about a 5000 square foot greenhouse where we can grow vegetables in water, a hydroponics greenhouse. This really will give our students a great opportunity to learn about ag-tech and science,” Chris Hatcher, CEO of Commodore Gardens, said.

This greenhouse will mainly be used to grow cucumbers, lettuce, and peppers. “We’re gonna have half of it dedicated to lettuces. So what we will be able to do is actually harvest about 800 heads of lettuce a week,” he said. “So on the other side, we’ll have the Beto Bucket System where we’ll grow vine crops like tomatoes, peppers, and cucumber.”

Commodore Gardens broke ground back in May. Since then, Hatcher said that the project is likely to be up and running by Thanksgiving. “In the hydroponics garden, it’ll really be more of a 365-day operation. Since it’s in a greenhouse, we’ll be able to run it like a business,” Hatcher said.
