US (OH): Students learn about hydroponics

Here is a look at recent South Euclid Lyndhurst Schools news, as presented by the district. 

Students at Sunview Elementary are learning about different garden plants through a unique, hands-on experience using a Lettuce Grow Vertical Hydroponic System purchased with a grant by the Sunview PTA.

The hydroponic garden features multiple types of lettuce, including classic butter, romaine, and crunchy leaf, as well as other leafy vegetables such as spinach, blue kale, and red bok choy.

Fresh herbs include Italian parsley, dill, and garlic chives, in addition to delicious produce, including cherry tomatoes and strawberries. PH level kits are also available for classes to test the PH level of each plant.

Unlike a traditional garden, which requires plant roots to seek out nutrients in the soil, hydroponic gardens have nutrients dissolved in the water surrounding the roots. The quick and easy access to nutrients enables the plants to quickly grow big and beautifully, making some of the garden’s bounty ready to cut. SEL Schools thanks the Sunview PTA for purchasing this learning resource for the students.
