Article sur le jardinage hydroponique et biologique à Montréal (en anglais)

To many, the idea of organic hydroponics seems like an impossible contradiction. Hydroponics, the growing of plants in a medium other than soil, usually utilizes a chemically derived nutrient solution. Organic gardeners, as a rule, do no like hydroponics: for those who love the soil, the prospect of plunging elbow-deep into a gritty mix of parlite and vermiculite is not very inspiring. Nor is brewing up a batch of Hy-pon-ex or Miracle-gro. However, as an enterprising group of urban gardeners in Montreal has discovered hydroponic food production need not rely upon a chemical nutrient solution ... and, under the unique conditions of rooftop farming in the city, soilless vegetable cultivation has distinct advantages.

Mid-Season Start-Up Kit Workshop

Where? The Rooftop Garden, 4750 Henri-Julien
When? This Thursday, July 21 at 6:00pm

Hi everyone!

We are happy to invite you to the mid-season check-in and workshop for the start-up kit community!

Come to the rooftop garden this Thursday to share your start-up kit experience with others who have their very own 'Rubbermaid garden? and see how our kits are growing on the roof! You’ll also have the opportunity to be inspired by different adaptations we’ve made to the basic grower principles …we’ve got a vertical garden using tin cans, multiple bins feeding off of a central reservoir (the ‘lazy urban farmer’ approach), experiments with different substrates and nutrient solutions and much more!

David Wees feedback

Hello

Thanks for the guided tour to the rooftop garden demonstration site. I’m glad I finally got to see what I have been hearing about: quite impressive!

I looked up the problem you had pointed out on some of the lettuce plants, chlorosis on the margins of the lower leaves. I’m not 100% sure but it might be a mild potassium deficiency; if the symptoms progress and show distinct necrotic areas (dried-up brown or tan areas) on the lower leaves then it would be definitely a potassium deficiency. Mind you, this could occur not because there is necessarily a lack of potassium in the fertilizer but because there is an excess of certain other minerals, especially cations like ammonium, sodium, etc.
