What is Hydroponics?

Hydroponics is a technique for growing produce without soil. Seeds are planted in a soil less growing medium, and then grown in a nutrient rich water. The water is recirculated, eliminating run-off and evaporation that is typical in conventional agriculture. Hydroponics is prevalent in controlled environment agriculture (CEA), as it is the perfect growing technique to maximize yields and efficiency. Water temperature, PH, nutrient levels, humidity, air temperature, and lighting are precisely controlled to create the ideal growing environment for crops.

Hydroponics is also ideal for growing in places where land is sparse, such as in cities. Because it uses 90% less land than conventional farming, hydroponics enables hyper-local produce to be grown within cities. Additionally, since growing indoors eliminates the seasonality of farming, hydroponics allows for sustainable, nutritious, pesticide & herbicide-free produce year round.

Our farm uses 93% less water than conventional farming.
