Hydroponics is the science of growing plants without soil. It’s relatively recent in Kenya, and it needs an energy intensive climate control system to work well. However, recent developments now allow farmers to practice hydroponics in simple, off-grid sheds.

    Wow, really amazing work here. In the USA and Europe, hydroponics tends to take on a highly technical side. Its good to see that the same results can be achieved through minimalistic,  well thought out, off-grid ideas.  Well done!
