Hydroponics simplified subject of November Park Program presentation

BEDFORD –  If you’re wondering what hydroponics is, Bill Van Tine will present a program at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, November 16 at the Otis Park Bath House to explain all about hydroponics, and how it works.

Van Tine’s presentation will cover the techniques of hydroponics gardening which includes three methods: the Drip System, Flood and Drain, and the Kratky method. Hydroponics is a method of growing plants without soil by using mineral nutrient solutions in water.

With this system, terrestrial plants may be grown with only their roots exposed to the mineral solution, or the roots may be supported by an inert medium, such as perlite or gravel. It’s a fascinating concept and is gaining popularity.

The free, one-hour educational program starts at 6 p.m. and includes time for questions. This is part of the Parks Program series which presents a different program every month. The historic Otis Park Bath House is located between the Red Brick Mansion and the Golf Course office.

 Please RSVP to the Park office for the program at 812-275-5692 or email amcintyre@bedford.in.us so we have enough handouts and chairs ready.

There is no program scheduled in December, but in January don’t miss the Bedford Park Program on Collecting and Making Maple Syrup, by Todd and Tracy Schmitz scheduled for January 25, 2022.  Mark your calendar for this interesting program!
