Maker Hour

The Science of Hydroponic Farming

Fancy yourself an urban farmer? Join Urban Growth, a San Diego nonprofit dedicated to teaching agriculture in the urban environment, as they share the science behind hydroponic farming. The first part of the event will be a free presentation and discussion as part of 52 Weeks of Science at Border X Brewing in Barrio Logan. After the presentation, get hands-on and create a micro-farm for your own home during the Maker Hour portion of the event. The presentation is free but participation in creating your own micro-farm requires advanced registration, a $15 and bringing your own container for the farm.

Your container should be plastic, and allow for a 3-inch diameter hole for the plant. Be creative and think sustainable, re-use protein powder, cat litter, coffee containers and more. This event is part of the Fleet's April SustainABLE programming.
