The Hydroponic Greenhouse at HHS

After granting Hudson High School $20,000 to help start a hydroponic garden, The Kiwanis Club of Hudson returned to tour the greenhouse.

Designed to be a project based learning experience, students in AP environmental science have started growing lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers in the hydroponic garden. The garden was developed as a means to examine biological concepts, as well as, to provide students with a meaningful way to see the application of these concepts. Such as, by measuring nutrients in the water for the plants to grow without soil, problem-solving problems like the amount of light needed in the greenhouse during the low-light winter months, and how to pollinate the plants. The Sustainability Project also provides job skills and training for our students with special needs.
