 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 FFV’s 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.

 As the Founder and Chief Visionary of this organization I can assure you that you will love the training and we promise you that you it will be a

 memorable day and the start of a new chapter in your lives that will not only enrich you but the world at large.

 I remain,

 Hydroponically yours,

 surrounding with responsibility and keep the premises clean. Your cooperation is highly solicited and thanked for in advance.

 Punctuality: In the interest of the greater good of all we request you to arrive on time to avoid losing precious time for fully

 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 not

 understood something they will be admitted to other workshops for the training as they happen in future at Mumbai free of cost till they are

 convinced 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.
