A variety of lettuces are available at a store in Lakewood, Colo., grown on-site in its GardenBox hydroponic garden.
Shoppers at a Natural Grocers store in the retailer’s hometown of Lakewood, Colo., now have access to leafy greens organically grown just 82 steps away.
The retailer has released its exclusive GardenBox lettuces, a line of greens grown in a hydroponic garden, a recent pilot program that takes place at the Green Mountain store in Lakewood. The hydroponic garden delivers living produce with roots intact for a longer shelf life and better flavor, is certified organic by Where Food Comes From Organic (WFCFO) and comes with a Clean Hydroponic Produce seal, according to the retailer.
