The Food Drive Kids have been experimenting at home with using hydroponics to grow fresh produce. Last fall, our founder, William spoke with the Sprout Scout students at Bugg Elementary about how you can grow food without soil. William has since returned to visit the Sprout Scouts and installed a hydroponic system there. The students in this after school program, sponsored by The Interfaith Food Shuttle will be growing bibb lettuce. They will be using the deep water culture method of hydroponics (DWC). The hope is that these students can learn how to grow fresh produce indoors, and take these skills home. These students will go into their lives with this skillset that can help to build a sustainable method of hunger relief, and break the cycle of hunger.
