     Make a Hydroponic System
Publisher: John Martin
Author(s): John Martin

Hydroponics taken from the Ancient Greek hydro (water) ponos (labour), the word hydroponics was said to have been first used by William Frederick Gericke of the University of California at Berkeley in 1929, although he asserts that the term was suggested by W. A. Setchell, of the University of California.

Hydroponics is the method of cultivating and growing plants in a mineral solution of nutrient rich water to be precise, no soil is used. Terrestrial plants are grown with their roots in a mineral rich solution or an inert medium such as Perlite, gravel coconut husk or mineral wool.

It was observed in the 18th century that plants absorb essential mineral nutrients as inorganic ions in water in natural conditions, it was observed that soil held the nutrients a sort of reservist but was not necessary for the growth of the plant. When the nutrients were dissolved in water, plants roots were able to absorb them.

When the required mineral nutrients are introduced into a plant's water supply artificially, soil is no longer required for the plant to thrive. Almost all terrestrial plants grow without the need for soil in a hydroponic produced envelopment. Plants that are not traditionally grown in a climate would be possible to grow using a controlled environment system like hydroponics.

As a side note once you remove the need for soil in the cultivation of plants you also remove all the diseases associated with soil, it is also said that plants grow stronger and are better tasted with higher yields.

The object we have set for this book is to show you how to make a hydroponic system that you can use to grow your own plants utilising nutrient rich solutions, all the items you require to achieve this are ready available from hardware stores, aquarium suppliers, garden centres and of course the Internet.

A small experimental system can cost less $50.00 to build, hydroponics is an excellent teaching aid for the classroom introducing the growing and cultivation of plants utilising alternative methods, and of course you have the added benefits of being able to eat your results.

This book will show you the six basic methods that are used in a hydroponic system, the basic items that are required and the solutions used as well as their pH (Potential Hydrogen-Hydroxyl or pH), the book itself is not a scientific journal although I sometime digress as I show in this preface, the book is meant as guide and introduction to Hydroponic Systems nothing more nothing less, how far you wish to go with your hydroponic gardening is entirely up to you.

The six systems mentioned in this book can be expanded on taking them all the way from the classroom of your local school to the production of products for the local market and beyond, utilising hydroponics you can grow strong healthy plants in areas with poor soil, you are no longer hindered by space as you can grow up the way in vertical hydroponic gardens, stacking one crop on top of another.

You can make a hydroponic system on verandas, balconies, city rooftops, window sills, kitchen corners, spare rooms, they can be built in greenhouses, polytunnels, in desert locations in old factories, placed in any unused space.

     The Vertical Farm: Feeding the World in the 21st Century
Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books
Author(s): Dickson Despommier

When Columbia professor Dickson Despommier set out to solve America's food, water, and energy crises, he didn't just think big-he thought up. Despommier's stroke of genius, the vertical farm, has excited scientists, architects, and politicians around the globe. These farms, grown inside skyscrapers, would provide solutions to many of the serious problems we currently face, including:-Allowing year-round crop production-Providing food to areas currently lacking arable land-Immunity to weather-related crop failure-Reuse of water collected by dehumidification of the indoor environment-New employment opportunities-No use of pesticides, fertilizers, or herbicides-Drastically reduced dependence on fossil fuels-No crop loss due to shipping or storage-No agricultural runoff-And many moreVertical farming can be located on abandoned city properties, creating new urban revenue streams. They will employ lots of skilled and unskilled labor. They can be run on wind, solar, tidal, and geothermal energy. They can be used to grow plants for pharmaceutical purposes or for converting gray water back into drinking water.In the tradition of the bestselling The World Without Us, this is a totally original landmark work destined to become a classic. With stunning illustrations and clear and entertaining writing, this book will appeal to anyone concerned about America's future.

     Aquaponic Gardening: A Step-By-Step Guide to Raising Vegetables and Fish Together
Publisher: New Society Publishers
Author(s): Sylvia Bernstein

A combination of aquaculture and hydroponics, aquaponic gardening is an amazingly productive way to grow organic vegetables, greens, herbs, and fruits, while providing the added benefits of fresh fish as a safe, healthy source of protein. On a larger scale, it is a key solution to mitigating food insecurity, climate change, groundwater pollution, and the impacts of overfishing on our oceans.
Aquaponic Gardening is the definitive do-it-yourself home manual, focused on giving you all the tools you need to create your own aquaponic system and enjoy healthy, safe, fresh, and delicious food all year round. Starting with an overview of the theory, benefits, and potential of aquaponics, the book goes on to explain:

  • The living elements--fish, plants, bacteria, and worms
  • Putting it all together--starting and maintaining a healthy system
Aquaponics systems are completely organic. They are four to six times more productive and use ninety percent less water than conventional gardens. Other advantages include no weeds, fewer pests, and no watering, fertilizing, bending, digging, or heavy lifting--in fact, there really is no downside! Anyone interested in taking the next step towards self-sufficiency will be fascinated by this practical, accessible, and well-illustrated guide.

     Vertical Gardening: Grow Up, Not Out, for More Vegetables and Flowers in Much Less Space
Publisher: Rodale Books
Author(s): Derek Fell

The biggest mistake gardeners make each season is starting out too big and then quickly realizing
their large plot requires too much weeding, watering, and backbreaking labor. Vertical gardening guarantees a better outcome from the day the trowel hits the soil?by shrinking the amount of ?floor? space needed and focusing on climbing plants that are less prone to insects, diseases, and animal pests.
Notable author and gardener Derek Fell has tried and tested thousands of varieties of vegetables,
flowers, and fruits and recommends the best plants for space-saving vertical gardening. His grow-up,
grow-down system also shows which ground-level plants make good companions underneath and alongside climbing plants. Best of all, many of Fell?s greatest climbers and mutually beneficial plants are available in seed packets in every local garden center.
With a mix of DIY and commercially available string supports, trellises, pergolas, raised beds, skyscraper gardens, and topsy-turvy planters, the vertical garden system reduces work, increases yields, makes harvesting easier, and can be practiced in spaces as small as a container or a one-by-four-foot strip. Vertical Gardening features 100 color photos of the author?s own vertical methods and showcases beautiful, troublefree perennials, shrubs, vegetables, annuals, and fruit perfect for this new, rewarding way to garden.
