I'm Troy, the founder of Agrestem.
My time with hydroponics began with a jar, a mint plant, and lighting. Unlike soil gardening, hydroponics requires no soil and is easy to move around. I gradually became more interested in the process, learning more about its uncanny efficiency over traditional plant growth methods and potential to revolutionize consumer agriculture.
Our mission is to make gardening more accessible, easier, and fun for individuals of all ages. Hydroponic gardening engages each and every single one of us in caring for the natural world, offering us opportunities to participate in hands-on learning, connecting us with fresh and healthy food, and makes this process as accessible and sustainable as possible.
At Agrestem, our mission is holistic, acknowledging the interconnectedness of our operations with the environment, community, and education initiatives. We are committed to environmental stewardship, consistently innovating to ensure our small hydroponic growing systems align with sustainable practices, thus reducing our ecological footprint. Furthermore, we seek to heighten public awareness around the critical importance of plant cultivation and its role in building a sustainable future. Through comprehensive educational programs and engaging hands-on experiences, we aspire to inspire individuals and communities to delve deeper into the world of hydroponics, empower them to make informed decisions, and boost their positive impact on the environment.
