Learn How To Grow Plants Without Soil

(BEDFORD) – Come to the next Bedford Park Program on January 22 at 6 p.m. and find out all about Hydroponics.

Hydroponics is a method of growing plants without soil by using mineral nutrient solutions in water.
Bill Van Tine will give a presentation at Wilson Park on the techniques and explain three techniques for this type of gardening: Drip System, Flood, and Drain, and the Kratky method.
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 will be presented in the heated historic Wilson Park Shelter House at 2211 Denson Avenue in Bedford, is heated. The program is part of the Bedford Park Outdoor Series.
Those attending are asked to RSVP at 812-275-5692 so there is enough handouts and chairs ready.
Also mark your calendar for Tuesday, February 26, when the Outdoor Program Series will feature a program with Rick Nicholson speaking on Weather and Meteorology.
