If You Plant It, It Will Grow

Build­ing on the momen­tum and pos­i­tive feed­back from our first hydro­pon­ics class, we are offer­ing it again in Novem­ber. Intro­duc­tion to Hydro­pon­ics will be offered Novem­ber 19th from 6:30pm — 9:30pm EST. Atten­dees will learn the basics of hydro­pon­ic food pro­duc­tion and devel­op their skills in con­struct­ing dif­fer­ent types of sys­tems.  The class is host­ed at the Colum­bus Idea Foundry and is open to the pub­lic. Cur­ricu­lum for the class is pub­licly avail­able through the HAPI online learn­ing man­age­ment sys­tem, so the class will be very hands-on and inter­ac­tive.

Hydroponic ImageThe first of a larg­er sequence of edu­ca­tion­al offer­ings around hydro­pon­ics and aquapon­ics, the class will famil­iar­ize stu­dents with the basic con­cepts of hydro­pon­ic food pro­duc­tion and intro­duce them to com­mon tech­niques and tools of the trade. Top­ics for dis­cus­sion will include plan­ning, light­ing, growth and struc­tures, envi­ron­ment, hygiene and foun­da­tion­al oper­at­ing prin­ci­ples. For much of the class, stu­dents will par­tic­i­pate in build­ing sys­tems that embody dif­fer­ent core tech­niques in mod­ern hydro­pon­ic pro­duc­tion. All tools and mate­ri­als will be pro­vid­ed in this immer­sive class and stu­dents will very like­ly get wet.

Class reg­is­tra­tion can be com­plet­ed on the Colum­bus Idea Foundry’s Class­es page.
