Teaching Villagers about Hydroponic Gardening
A group of government officials and representatives from private sectors based in Bangkok paid a visit to a number of local community villages on the Eastern Seaboard. Their mission was to teach villagers the benefits of growing vegetables and fruit by the hydroponic system under their project entitled space management in rural and city communities. Their aim is to promote economic sufficiency through this well known space saving organic system of soilless gardening called hydroponics; that is growing plants without soil, utilizing mineral nutrient solutions in water in a controlled environment. Plants are placed on inert bases, such as coconut husk, gravel or mineral wool, and roots are immersed in the solution to absorb the minerals.
