Located in downtown Mobile, Shipshape Urban Farms grows hydroponic lettuces, leafy greens and herbs. Learn from owner Dale Speetjens about how hydroponic crops are cultivated without soil in nutrient-rich water in a controlled environment with no pesticides or herbicides. The process uses innovative features and is environmentally friendly, saving water and using less energy than traditional farming practices. The event is part of the Winter Wednesdays series at Bellingrath in January and February. Visit bellingrath.org to view the full schedule.
