Hydroponics System Design Plan 

 

MCPS’s Green Schools Program in conjunction with Food & Nutrition Services would like to produce locally grown produce for use in their cafeterias in an effort to decrease usage of natural resources, such as water and land in Montgomery County; Your RFP plan is to research, construct, and evaluate a hydroponics system that will allow you to grow basil plants without using soil in the classroom.
