CAN (AB): Couple turns basement into a farm

A local couple has found success in a new pastime that pays off in fresh produce. After building a hydroponic garden in their basement, Angelo and Teresa Gentili have been keeping themselves, their family, and friends eating fresh home-grown vegetables all year round.

"There's a difference when you pick it fresh," Angelo said. "It's a totally different flavor, taste, texture – it's like a party in your mouth," Teresa added. "It's wonderful."

The couple's foray into indoor gardening started in 2020. Angelo was looking for a new hobby during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and decided to try out hydroponics.

"There's a lot of information on how to build them on the internet," he said. "It's not hard. Anybody can do it really. All you have to do is go on YouTube."
