Project Description

Rooted

We are currently building a social enterprise that will operate through the Mount Royal University greenhouse, growing microgreens through environmentally friendly growing practices and using on-campus/Green Cup compost materials. Our vision is for the operations to be managed by the participants in our EmpowerU program, providing employment to individuals in need.

The microgreens we grow will be sold to local vendors such as The Table, our on-campus food provider, reducing shipping costs and environmental impact.
