Virtual FieldTrip To Hydroponic Farm

Geography: Hydroponic Farm Virtual Fieldtrip

This week year 7 students participated in a virtual field trip where I visited the Urban Farm of Hydrofresh hydroponics inNusajaya. Students are currently starting our new topic on water and were able to see how hydroponic indoor farming is an extremely efficient use of water –the water is constantly recycled. The ratio of fresh vegetables to land area means that they produce over 10 times as many vegetables per floor of their building than the same area would produce in the ground. Hydrofresh has a three story building so their farm produces 30 times as much as a conventional farm – without pesticides or herbicides. This field trip leads into our analysis of sustainable water use and cities, which is essential for the future development of Johor Bahru.
