Hydroponic/Home Gardening

Join the hydroponic gardening project!

The Veggie Initiative

This project includes the process of growing all natural organic herbs and vegetables hydroponically. There are 9 available "plant pods" in which herbs/veggies of your choice may be grown. Upon plant maturation, the plant will be transplanted into a pot and taken home, freeing a "plant pod" and thus creating a growth cycle.  

Click here to see a list of commonly grown hydroponic herbs/veggies

For more information, or to claim one of the nine plant pods, see below!

1) Seeds are planted in a grow medium, I use conical sponge pods

2) The grow medium is placed in a net pod, which holds the sponge pod in place

3) The net pot with the sponge pod is suspended in the water of the grow basin, leaving the top exposed to air to allow the plant to flourish

4) Germination caps are placed over the top of the exposed pod. These are clear plastic caps that increase humidity around the seed and increase temperature to promote sprouting. 

5) Plant seeds sprout at different rates, for reference, see the links below:

-- Veggie seed germination timetable

-- Herb seed germination timetable

6) Add water, nutrients, and prune as necessary

7) Harvest!! Enjoy the fruits of your labor

What does gardening mean to you? I highly encourage you to share your thoughts in the box, your response contributes to spreading the joy of this hobby :) 

Personally, gardening is one of my primary hobbies amongst golfing, spending quality time with my wife and pets, and listening to audiobooks. I do not have many hobbies, instead, I pay particular attention to a small handful. In the simplest terms, gardening brings me joy. It might be the satisfaction of successfully sprouting a seed, or caring for and nurturing a plant enough to keep it healthy. While these phenomena are pleasurable, the contrasting pain of watching a plant never sprout, wither, mold, or become infested with bugs somehow balances the emotional scale. Maintaining healthy plants takes work, which can be time consuming, dirty, and effortful. Taking time to be present while working with and around nature is not only healthy for your body, but your mind as well. Finally, gardening is as much work as you desire to make it, that's a beautiful concept. From a potted plant to 10 raised beds, here is my unsolicited advice when it comes to gardening: choose what makes you happy.
