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!
Gone are the days of having a big back yard with room to grow food and have an actual garden. High density living, smaller lots and no time means we've lost the art of growing a veggie patch in the old back yard! This way of customary living and an increase in urbanisation has pushed an increase in population, cities and towns are getting bigger with people moving in search of more opportunity for their families. With cities becoming concrete jungles and land scarcity at an a
Simply put, an Aquaponic system combines traditional Aquaculture with Hydroponics. The fish and plants in an Aquaponic system live interdependently. Basically the fish poop, plants eat the fish poop and return clean water to the fish. The benefits of growing food with Aquaponics are truly incredible. Organic growth Farming organisations and "certification" bodies are always debating whether Aquaponics is truly organic. In actual fact, you don't need to be a plant biologist to
