Nestled in a baby blanket, the answer to the emerging world food shortage could be found in Faribault. Aeroponics allows plants to grow in a reusable media, in this instance microfleece, the same material in baby blankets. By keeping the roots exposed to oxygen, a steady supply of a nutrient-rich water mist and ample grow lighting, the plants grow 100 percent faster than they would in soil and 50 percent faster than when using hydroponics, a water-based growing system. Add in the fact that the plants can be placed in trays that can be stacked vertically and you get 200 times the production as soil. And it reduces water and fertilizer use by 90 percent, making it environmentally conscious as well. Living Green Farm will host a dinner presentation, which is open to the public, at the Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, February 26, Wednesday, February 27, Tuesday, March 5 and Wednesday, March 6. RSVP for the date of your convenience to Ken Sourbeck at Living Green Farm: 612-839-4180.
