02.13.21 Zoom Workshop – Introduction to Hydroponics and Aeroponics

This is a workshop on real techniques to get started with basic hydroponics and aeroponic systems for growing your own food indoors wherever you want. The primary advantage is that you can grow your food in your home irrespective of the seasons or climatic conditions outdoors.

In this class, you will learn the details behind the science and implementation of hydroponic systems. We will focus on growing leafy greens such as cabbage, spinach, kale, and lettuce. You will learn about the budget, the technical skills, and the process of building your own hydroponic system!

The class will be hosted by Ankur Shah and Andrea Nicolau, both of whom have a background in environmental science and have grown kale, spinach, and cabbage using an aeroponic system which is shown below.

Here is another picture of the roots of each of the plants once they are medium sized.

You will learn exactly how to replicate this kind of indoor food system and more techniques in this class!
