Join us for Set it and Forget it Hydroponics! (Webinar) on Monday, September 20 at 11 AM.

Are you interested in growing your own food without the strenuous work of digging into the dirt? Do you want to reduce the cost of your groceries?

If so, try your hand at Hydroponics, a simple and bountiful way to produce your own fruits and veggies without the extra hassle of gardening. Hydroponics provides all the basic needs of your plants: light, water, a pH balanced nutrient solution, structural support, and air flow. Water and land use are extremely efficient in hydroponic systems, making the method a well-suited urban food production for personal or commercial use. It’s easy and fun!

Join Hannah Wooten, IFAS Extension Agent of Commercial Horticulture, to learn about the science that will lead to your “set it and forget it” hydroponics success indoors and outdoors year-round. Wooten will share one of the simplest, most affordable methods of hydroponic growing. You’ll be incredibly surprised about the quality and quantity of produce that you’ll grow – you’ll never need to shop for produce again!

By participating in this program, you can expect to learn:

  • about the global and local food situation.
  • about hydroponic growing methods.
  • about the basics of growing hydroponic vegetables using artificial lights indoors.

This program is presented by Hannah Wooten and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
