Alex Macmillan joined Campus Dining Services in 2017, first helping in the design and development of the greenhouse and now overseeing all operations and production.
Alex has a degree in horticulture from the University of New Hampshire and a solid background in organic farming, vertical farming and greenhouse growing. He is passionate about the local food movement and is inspired by the department’s first foray into farming. He said of this venture, “Locally grown food just tastes better. I’m excited to grow food right here on campus showing the community where their food comes from.”
