It has become a regular refrain in the news of the day – food prices on the rise, yet another genetically altered, chemically contaminated crop hits the market, health care costs creeping ever higher.

These are just a few of the reason that hydroponics is attracting so much interest. It is an affordable and efficient way to grow clean, reliable food for the table and herbs for seasoning and natural healing.
