Garden Guru: Hydroponic growing

June 24, 5 p.m.

1884 Jade Pl.

Are you curious about hydroponic and aeroponic systems? We have found a Garden Guru who has been growing in an aeroponic system for almost three years in Revelstoke. Staci Klein is an advocate for the system and will host an open house-style visit where you can get to know the ins and outs of growing out of soil in a water-based system. Hydroponic systems can be 10 times more efficient for growing crops by delivering plant nutrients right to the roots via water soluble nutrient solution. Aeroponics is a type of hydroponics and has subtle differences where the roots are misted at regular intervals. Staci’s system delivers constant droplets onto the roots inside a tower. Hydroponic systems can vary in design from large scale greenhouse operations, of which there are many in Calgary with ample sunlight; to small personal indoor and outdoor designs. This particular system is neat since it can be used indoors and outdoors, with removable lights for the dark cold months in Revelstoke. Stop by anytime between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Cemetery Tour

The guided tour takes about 1.5 hours and explores the history of the cemetery and the stories of Revelstoke pioneers. $8 includes museum admission (please come to the museum by 2 p.m. or earlier if you wish to take advantage of this offer) or meet at the cemetery gates.
