Course Information

Living in the city can be a deterrent to a passionate gardener due to land scarcity. The good news is, with hydroponics, you don’t need soil or a lot of room to fill an urban space with your favourite plants and greens. Now, it won’t take much to enjoy that freshly-cut basil with your pasta.

Learning Outcomes

This one day course will equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to establish your very own soil-less edible garden.
