Explore how to grow plants without soil using hydroponics, which promotes fast growth and requires less water and space than conventional gardens. You'll learn what systems work best, which plants to choose, and how to make sure they get proper nutrition. While we will focus primarily on home-scale systems, the wider applications of hydroponics will also be discussed.

Question from Anonymous
Do you receive a certificate and is any of the work hands-on?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! As a 100-level course, the class does not count towards any of the certificates. The course is an excellent overview of the principles of hydroponics, although most of the hands-on elements will deal with small scale systems that can be replicated at home (like bottle-ponic systems); they will visit a larger scale operation during the class, though.
