Hydroponics is the practice of growing plants without soil.

Benefits of Hydroponic Technology
  • Minimum Land Use High Yields in small land footprint
  • No Genetically Modified seeds used Multiple and Mixed crops per year
  • Many varieties of FFVs can be cultivated Low downtime between crops
  • Easy to maintain systems Pesticide Free
  • Used Water can be recycled and used No water run-off, avoids pollution
  • Minimum Carbon Footprint Soil-Less Cultivation
  • Absolutely Hygienic, No Chemical Trace Can Grow Vegetables, Fruits and Herbs
  • Is non-messy, clean agriculture and appeals to the modern generation Post-harvest waste can be composted.


Our mission is to help by training people in rural and urban areas to set up Hydroponic Vegetable and Herb gardens on their rooftops, balconies, backyards and even on window sills. We wish to make Urban farming a norm in the years to come. This technique will help common people to learn the methods of growing their own food within the resources of their own homes. This has great relevance at a time when food security crisis is slowly becoming a reality in the world.

Our Promise and Value Proposition: We promise to give our very best for you during the training however if any student is not convinced that during this workshop he/she has notunderstood something they will be admitted to other workshops for the training as they happen in future at Mumbai free of cost till they areconvinced that they have learnt the basics to get going with Simplified Hydroponics in their homes. We believe that we must give our students more in Use Value than what the pay in Cash Value.
