Tonight's meetup is canceled due to the tropical storm. Peter will be rescheduled for the September meetup. Every 3rd Thursday, Dandelion Communitea Cafe hosts Green Drinks. Hydro Power August's featured speakers will be Peter Sorrentino, of Sunshine Sunshine Hydroponics. Peter will speak on the environmental benefits of hydroponics and provide an introduction to this method of cultivating plants in a soil-free medium. Hydroponic gardening offers many advantages to the home gardener and to large-scale business operations. Since a sterile medium is used, there are no weeds to remove, and soil-borne pests and diseases are minimized, if not eliminated completely. Properly grown hydroponic plants also are healthier and more vigorous because all of the necessary growth elements are readily available. The plants can mature faster, yielding an earlier harvest of vegetable and flower crops. www.sunshinehydro.com/ Green Drinks is the only place in Orlando where you can eat, drink, enjoy great music and talk and learn about the issues concerning OurLando's community.
