entrepreneurs and educators. We want to encourage continued interest and curiosity by providing this in-person service to residents of Eastern Ontario.”

The first reported soilless horticulture techniques began in the late 1600s. Since then, the science and techniques associated with hydroponics have exploded; making growing plants without soil sustainable and much more accessible. Hydroponic systems use water up to 90% more efficiently than conventional agricultural practices and its spike in popularity is also attributed to the quality and productivity of the crops produced.
“A large success of our business is from providing free resources and education to growers through our YouTube videos and blog content,” says Mr. Lang. “We fully support growers
through their challenges regardless of their previous growing experiences to get them to a place where growing without soil becomes second nature.”
Future expansion plans include a viewing window into the research growing facility where the R & D team trial and test best practices and optimal conditions for true vertical hydroponic growing. This research further supports commercial ag-tech farmers and educational centres who are operating with ZipGrow’s unique technology and helps to continue to guide the everyday grower towards success.
