US (IN): Grower receives grants for hydroponic towers

On a Thursday morning last August, Crothersville FFA members had an extra ticket to the Indiana State Fair and asked Adviser Linda Myers to take it.

They asked again that afternoon, and then on Friday morning. They even asked her what time they were leaving Saturday morning. She finally agreed to go.

The last thing they saw that day was a garden that had a hydroponic wall in it. The FFA members were intrigued and wanted to build one in the school’s greenhouse.

“Being from Jackson County, you see a lot of fields, and I just thought that was really the only way you could grow stuff, so seeing this, it was pretty fascinating,” freshman Baron Riley said. “It was something new. It was something innovative.”
