Hydroponics is the method of growing plants using a mineral and nutrient solution, in water, without soil. With changing climates, fresh fruits and vegetables currently are being transported longer distances to reach consumers decreasing their nutritional value. The demand for locally grown produce is rapidly increasing as more restaurants are becoming farm-to-table, and more farmers’ markets/CSA’s(consumer supported agriculture) are opening to meet the demand. However with increasing demand, very few farming methods are ready to meet a year round supply without a greenhouse. Greenhouses are very expensive, and are not nearly as efficient as hydroponic farms. A hydroponic farm is highly efficient at sustainable agriculture with the capacity to produce year-round to meet local needs.
