The Institute of Simplified Hydroponics invites
you to learn how to turn your rooftops into
farming space
‘’Grow Your Own” is the new mantra!
What is Hydroponics
Hydroponics is the art of growing plants without soil. It is the perfect way
to avoid heavy, back breaking work, such as digging. Pests, microbial
disease and weeds are generally much easier to control. Water used is
one-tenth the amount used in soil cultivation. Over the past few decades
hydroponics has proven an ideal method for both keen amateur rooftop
and backyard gardeners and commercial growers looking for an
alternative way of producing plants.
