Hydroponic Systems has participated this week in a training session for 1st ESO students of the Monteagudo-Nelva school (Murcia, Spain) to instruct them on the wide benefits of growing without soil and the positive repercussions it has for the environment, such as saving water and reducing the use of pesticides and chemicals in agriculture. The talk was given by agronomist María Giménez.
This training day is part of a project that the Monteagudo-Nelva school is promoting with its young students: renovating their school garden. This initiative aims for students to know this activity in the first person and become familiar with the advantages of the use of hydroponics systems and soilless cultivation.
In addition, the project has been submitted to the Endesa Foundation's Ecoinnvocation contest, an award that aims to promote eco-biosocial competence and greater knowledge of our biodiversity among teachers and students from schools throughout Spain.
