Garden Guru: Hydroponic Growing
Jun 24 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Are you curious about Hydroponic and Aeroponic systems? We have found a Garden Guru who has been growing in an aeroponic system for almost 3 years in Revelstoke. Staci Klein is an advocate for the system she has and is going to host us for an open-house style visit where we can get to know the ins and outs of growing out of soil in a water-based system.

Hydroponic systems can be 10 x more efficient at growing crops by delivering plant nutrients right to the roots via water soluble nutrient solution. Aeroponics is actually a type of hydroponics and has subtle differences where the roots are misted at regular intervals. Staci’s system delivers constant droplets onto the roots inside a tower. Hydroponic systems can vary in design from large scale greenhouse operations, of which there are many in Calgary with ample sunlight; to small personal indoor and outdoor designs. This particular system is neat since it can be used indoors and outdoors, with removable lights for the dark cold months in Revelstoke.

Staci Klein has a farming background from Alberta and enjoys being able to grow some of her own food in this system throughout the year. Typically in these systems, we see greens, kale, basil, and lettuces growing but Staci plans her vertical garden with diversity in mind. Come see her healthy Zucchini, tomatoes, lettuces, and much more. She is passionate about spreading the knowledge around food production and this alternative way of growing that she learned about through being an advocate and representative in the Juice Plus+ community for the past 3 years. Whether you like the system she has or are considering building one for yourself, you can come and pick her brain about little tricks for maintaining healthy plants in a system like this.

This Garden Guru workshop is meant to be open-house style demonstrating a way to grow year-round with limited space in Revelstoke. Stop by anytime between 5-7pm on Monday June 24th, 2019. Mint Sun-Tea will be available, so come check us out at 1884 Jade Pl.
