With the current price of groceries, the ability to grow your own tomatoes, fresh salad greens and herbs is especially desirable. With hydroponics, there is no need for a large space to grow your own, so there a large plot of land or even a yard, for that matter, is required. Imagine having fresh greens with no chemical additives as close as your patio or any spare space in your home or apartment, where you will set up you own mini garden. There is no need for soil, tilling and hoeing, as hydroponics plants are grown in water where the nutrients required by the plants are added.
Hydroponics are also a great way to get your children involved in a green hobby, where they will be able to see the results of their efforts and learn of the healthy value of vegetables and the beauty of flowers that they have played a part in growing while creating a passive educational event. There is a large body of information available to the home hydroponics enthusiast and many kits that will enable you to get started on this fabulous agricultural and culinary adventure.
