Vertical farming is the practice of growing crops using soilless farming techniques such as hydroponics, aquaponics, and aeroponics in vertically stacked layers. It often incorporates controlled-environment agriculture, which aims to optimise plant growth with nutrients, lighting and pH. Vertical farming is perfect for high density living areas or to save space.

Hydroponics is simply described as growing plants without soil. Hydroponics allows you to control more of the variables including pH levels, lighting and nutrients for optimal plant growth and produce yields. Water is the main method of delivering the nutrients to the plant’s roots, combined with growing media to help support the plant. Hydroponically grown plants dip their roots directly into nutrient-rich solutions, so plants get more of what they need much faster and easier. Hydroponic farming can be used in locations where soil conditions are too poor to support farming, or where space is limited. It can be done anytime and anywhere!
Many growers start with soil but quickly move on to try other methods that promise adventure and the lure of even greater rewards. Hydroponics offers accelerated root growth which leads to vigorous, high performing plants. Bigger, faster, stronger is a typical description from some hydro enthusiasts who swear they’ll never go back to growing in soil. On the other hand, hydro is typically known to be less forgiving than soil. The leading threat to growing with hydroponics is r
We need to rethink sustainability. We need to reduce our human footprint and find innovative ways to support the environment. This leads us to the conversation around how important sustainability in schools and the education sector will be for students and future generations, who will ultimately need to reverse the damage and save the planet.
We can only imagine what things will look like in 2030 if we don't make some huge changes today. How do our future generations begin
