What We Do

Our Mission

We aim to help educators integrate the highly engaging STEM field of hydroponics into their classrooms and curriculum. 

We do this by offering an easy to use, comprehensive, compact and mobile hydroponic cart. The cart integrates three main "styles" of hydroponics (deep water culture, aeroponics & aquaponics) into a portable, single outlet, self-lighting, science lab. It also offers the parts and space needed for student projects (maker-space, bio-lab, garden club, etc.).

Through the use of Skype, we bring our hydroponic production facility to your classroom. Students get a walk-through tour with our hydroponic specialists, who show how we use soilless science for the replication of nursery stock and vegetable production.

 

Bring STEM Alive With Hydroponics

We provide everything you need to incorporate this exciting field into your classroom. From equipment to live support with our specialists, we have what you need for worry-free success.

Our hydroponic carts demonstrate the versatility of hydroponics by utilizing multiple techniques. The maker-space area provides room for class experiments and student built systems.

Take a "Virtual Class Trip" with us and explore the possibilities at our hydroponic production facility.

Who We Are

We believe that the future of agriculture, conservation and sustainability is in hydroponics, and that the versatility of the execution and application of it, make it fit perfectly within the fundamental principles of STEM. 

Primarily, we are growers. Our farm, located in Middletown, New York, grows long-term "field crops" (trees & shrubs), as well as having over an acre of greenhouses. The greenhouses are where the "magic" (or science) happens. We use hydroponics everyday to propagate, or "clone," a large array of plants we sell. Coupled with this is a production facility for growing vegetables and leafy greens, all in hydroponics. Our garden center in Northvale, New Jersey complements this by carrying a large selection of hydroponic equipment, and is staffed by knowledgeable people.
