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!
The pandemic impacts have led to severe and widespread increases in global food insecurity, affecting households in almost every country. People have exhausted their reserves of food and cash without back up, and now, as conflict in eastern Europe rises we are facing a long lasting crisis. Economies have shrunk, with even greater threat this year as experts advise impacts of war in Europe will see further distress to our economies. Fuel prices have soared overnight and extrem
Contact with nature is crucial part of sustainability education in early childhood education and care. This helps children develop an appreciation for the earth and all its inhabitants. Why is Environment Sustainability important to Australian Schools? As the Global Climate Crisis accelerates we need to teach our children the importance of our environment and that the actions we make inevitably will shape our planets future. Sustainability education for children can best be a
