Spring is here and Flux is planting a garden for the summer! Flux’s Community Organizer-in-Residence and experienced landscape builder Gil Lopez is leading up a series of Friday educational workshops. Come learn some hands-on experience in DIY gardening while simultaneously building out a sustainable, contained growing area on Flux’s roof!
Workshop #2: Friday, May 23, 7pm-9pm
Hydroponics on the Edge
Let’s build a Nutrient Film Technique Hydroponic system to grow herbs and leafy greens for our community. This hands-on workshop will start with a brief talk about “Urban Ecotones” and how this project will expand the edges of the urban ecology within Long Island City. Participants will also receive a shopping list to creating a similar system in their own communities and apartments, expanding their own urban edge.
