WHERE: Contact Michael Kellough
WHAT: CanGro is a new student project group focusing on making sustainable agriculture through hydroponics. These farms take significantly less water and space than traditional farms.

The group plans to design the farm over the next 4 months, and build the farm in the fall semester. The group needs individuals of all backgrounds to design this farm. Computer Engineering students are needed to design the climate control system and software to interface with it. If this initiative appeals to you, we encourage you to contact Michael Kellough kellough@ualberta.ca.
