Virtual Tour of Camden County Hydroponics Green House

Tour of Camden County Hydroponics Green House
Wednesday, September 30th, 12 PM

Join Valerie Brown,Program Coordinator for the CC Office of Sustainability, for a tour of the Camden County Hydroponic Greenhouse! What is hydroponics and how does it work? Hydroponics is a soil-less approach to gardening that has been utilized for thousands of years. Hydroponic gardening produces larger plants and higher yields due to the nutrient rich solution delivered directly to the plant root system. This makes for easier access to nutrients compared to traditional soil gardening in which the plants need to search for nutrients. Furthermore, the reuse of the nutrient solution utilizes less water than conventional gardening. Ultimately, our mission is to create a place to produce locally-grown fruits and vegetables in an environment where food safety, nutrition, and water conservation are our key principles to combating food deserts in low-income urban areas as well as educating the public on the fundamentals of hydroponic gardening. There will be a question and answer segment.
