SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — September usually means the gardening season is coming to a close for most growers, but at a new Springfield farm, things are just getting off the ground. In the first few weeks of the month, Square Roots harvested its first batch of greens and herbs, set for immediate distribution as the next crop takes root. Even without soil, sunlight, and less water than conventional agriculture, Leah Bahan-Harris, the campus general manager, believes it should take a month to go from seed to sell thanks to the farm's hydroponic facility.
