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.
The 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.
