Hydroponics is a way of growing plants without soil and is a great option for producing edible produce in compact urban environments.   
Hydroponics is a lightweight and versatile option for indoor and outdoor spaces, where soil is too bulky or impractical. We provide ideas and direction for the best hydroponic solution for your location. Our modular units can be stacked and designed to fit any space. We offer a range of technological options including aeroponics and aquaponics. Sow the City has established hydroponics systems, using LED lighting and off grid systems powered by photovoltaics, for clients including Manchester European City of Science and the Printworks. Our modular units can be stacked and designed to fit any space. We can install and build your hydroponics system; integrate sensors to monitor pH, temperature, flow and nutrient levels; and train staff to operate and maintain systems. All systems are water efficient, using up to 90% less water than conventional gardens. We can also integrate renewable energy technology into the system to provide off grid electricity for the pumps and sensors.
