Tech is everywhere! Join us in October as we learn about the applications of technology in hydroponic farming. Sarah Ward from Oasis Springs Farm will walk us through the ups and downs of hydroponic farming, as well as the technology that they leverage to support their success. We will get a behind-the-scenes tour of the farm, along with great insight into this incredible business and technology!
Back in 2016, Sarah, who’s passion is eating really good local food, was looking for a hobby to keep her husband Chris busy during the long, dark winter days of New Hampshire. Because of his engineering and technology background she suggested hydroponic planting and the seed to start a farm was planted. After testing out some home-grown crops and researching into starting a business, the idea grew into what Oasis Springs Farms is today: a family run, local farm whose mission is to provide fresh, healthy and local produce year-round to our community through environmentally friendly practices and high-tech resources.
