St Michael’s greenhouse project grows stronger roots in the community

July 24, 2009

With St Michael’s School closed for the summer, a team of around 15 FREdome volunteers of all ages has stepped in to run a summer growing experiment at the £13,000 facility. …

The carefully-controlled experiment will verify that good edible crops can be successfully grown using a solution of sea nutrients in tap water.

Volunteers will check the hydroponics system daily and record growth. 

Can you help?

No horticultural experience required, just willingness to give up half an hour of your day up to once a week through the summer break.  If you would like to get involved please call Greg Peachey on 0845 225  3005!

C-Green Solutions is FREdome project to grow more healthy and sustainable food locally.  It is supported by St Michaels Catholic High School in Garston.  To find out more about hydroponics and the C-Green solution, please visit  www.fredome.org
