Northern Gardening - Growing Hydroponic Vegetables

Growing Hydroponic Vegetables: It can be done.

Join co-hosts Diane Booth and Joan Farnam with guest Paula Sundet-Wolf as they interview Barry Thoele from Barry’s Cherries out of Staples, MN, and Rich Fisher, Bay Produce Grower from Superior, WI.  Both growers are using hydroponic methods of growing for year-round produce, which we can also do here.  What are the advantages of growing hydroponically versus growing in soil?   Would this be a good system for us in Cook County? These are some of the questions we ask.

To find out more, look at this video of Barry and his hydroponic greenhouse.

Barry will be giving a TEDX talk next week. Rich produces tomatoes and other vegetables for the Challenge Center/Bay Produce in Superior, Wi. They deliver to Grand Marais.
