Why Hydroponics


Hydroponics is a method of growing crops in water instead of soil. The water is infused with the nutrients that plants need to grow. It’s organic and way more sustainable than regular farming in many ways! Don’t worry, this isn’t a new age experiment – hydroponics can be traced back to the Aztec civilisation!

But why?

When It comes to hydroponic farming, you’re literally the boss. Meaning, you get to entirely control the farm environment. You can give your plants regular access to the water and nutrients and they grow 50% faster than they would in soil.

Another why?

This method eliminates the need for pesticides and herbicides, so you grow a lot more produce In a lot less space by growing vertically, and you can reuse the same water instead of a constant fresh supply.

The result is great quality veggies, and since this is so easy to execute in urban areas, access to produce is faster and fresher than ever.
