Solution Culture: Hydroponics For Creative Practice says
Emerging artist and environmental steward Paul Chartrand will lead participants through an introductory course to hydroponics and creating customized soil-less gardening systems for artistic and expressive applications. Using recycled materials, each participant will be guided through the construction of a simple mechanism that can both aerate and pump water to plants. Participants will also be introduced to essential supplies and local suppliers for building on knowledge acquired in the workshop and completing a hydroponic system on a larger scale. Paul will also present some of his past projects, and discuss best practices for implementing soil-less gardening technologies in the context of sculpture, installation and community art projects. Each student will leave with a small functioning hydroponic system containing a spider plant. Register here:

This workshop is hosted in partnership with Subtle Technologies, an organization providing a platform for community-building and knowledge-sharing at the intersection of art, science and technology.
