Hydroponics 101 Available at Kress Pavilion

Have you had any interest in this growing farming style? Well here is your chance to learn more. On January 12, 11 am, the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor is hosting a “Hydroponics 101” presentation. Participants can learn the fundamentals of hydroponics, its pros and cons, what it takes to grow crops in various environments, and how to set up your own home system.

Hydroponics is a form of gardening that uses no soil, but instead grows plants in a solution of nutrients mixed with water. According to Fullbloom Hydroponics, the advantages of hydroponics, “…is a greatly increased rate of growth in your plants. With the proper setup, your plants will mature up to 25% faster and produce up to 30% more than the same plants grown in soil.”

There are a few type of hydroponic systems, each with their own features, which can help tailor your system to your needs. These systems include: Deepwater Culture, Nutrient Film Technique, Aeroponics, Wicking, Ebb & Flow, and the Drip System.

While the presentation is free, there are kits available for purchase. All are welcome to the Kress Pavilion for an afternoon of learning!
