Hydroponics is a method growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions in water, without soil. It not only provides a fun and interesting way to grow food, but it's fast and takes less water than a regular garden! Don't believe us? Come to the class and learn one way to start growing your own adventure! We'll go over the basic principles behind hydroponics as well as do some on site building and assembly.
Come with an open mind and leave with no soil under your finger nails! This class is being held on private property, so make sure to park off the street and don't block the neighbor's driveways. A suggested donation of $5 is asked to help cover instructor costs. Bring a camera to take as many pictures as you want and a notebook to take notes and any questions you have.
