FAQs

What is hydroponic farming?


 Hydroponic farming is a method of growing plants without using soil or conventional fertilizers, and instead using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent. The roots of our hydroponic produce are physically supported by inert and sterile Oasis Horticubes, which supply water steadily, without affecting the pH of the growing environment. 


What are the benefits of hydroponics?


 Hydroponics make it possible to grow food consistently throughout the year, regardless of ground soil conditions, water limitations, and climate. It offers increased food security, conserves more water than traditional agriculture, and allows for complete control of the crop's environment, nutrients, and pH of the water (which ensures optimal nutrient uptake for plants). Growing soil-less keeps plants safe from the threat of soil-borne pests and diseases, and creates the possibility of offering a greater variety of nutrient-rich product. 

Can Grateful Greens grow a specialized variety of crop for a specific customer?


Yes.  Grateful Greens often gets requests to grow a certain crop.  With proper lead-time (45-60 days), we can provide almost any lettuce or herb to our customers.  However, unlike the standard ordering process, this service does require a standing order and a purchase contract.
