Hydroponics, a method of growing plants in water instead of soil, is becoming increasingly popular for growing food indoors. In the dead of winter, you can easily be growing lettuce, herbs or other vegetables in your own home. This program will demonstrate how easy making an at home hydroponic system can be. Horticulture Educator Candice Hart will discuss the basics of how hydroponics works, the materials needed to build a system and the maintenance required. Participants will make their own 3-gallon system to take home.
