HRH The Earl of Wessex visited Bridge Community Wellness Gardens and Farm on Monday, November 19, to officially open The Earl of Chester Hydroponics Unit.

The commercial hydroponics unit, the first of its kind in Cheshire, is a method of growing plants without soil by using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent.

Plants can be grown with only their roots exposed to the solution. Staff and volunteers at the farm are growing fruit, vegetables and exotic microgreens using hydroponics to order for high end restaurants in Cheshire.
