What you'll do

This experience has 2 parts.

In part 1, you'll learn about and make a simple hydroponic system for growing herbs like basil at home. Using only 6 common items (a plastic container, plastic cups, cotton balls, newspaper, a small amount of soil and the seeds of your choice), you will have a home garden system built in less than 30 minutes ! This is a great activity for adults or kids/adults together.

In Part 2 of this experience, you'll see basil and other herbs growing in different home gardening systems in my backyard and greenhouse. These are a collection of soil based and hydroponic systems. The goal of this part of the experience is to learn about different gardening methods you can easily do at home and continue in your gardening journey.
Other things to note
I can address any questions relating to agriculture, hydroponics, organic production so they should prepare their questions on these subjects beforehand.
