Today Glenna Tabor joins us to discuss how we can educate and empower children to grow their own food using hydroponics in any educational environment. Glenna Tabor is not just an educator but also a passionate hydroponic farmer. With a rich background as a classroom teacher, specialist, and trainer, she has seamlessly blended her knowledge of education with hydroponics, emphasizing its real-world connection to math and science. Recognizing the potential of hydroponics as a living curriculum, Glenna initiated Hydro4Food.Com, a platform dedicated to introducing hydroponics in the classroom through videos and curriculum.
The essence of hydroponics in education is multifaceted. Children’s reactions are overwhelmingly positive when they grasp the concept of growing their own food, a testament to the method’s effectiveness. Not only does it offer a hands-on approach to learning, but hydroponics also integrates naturally with subjects like math, allowing students to master complex concepts in an engaging manner. Glenna’s focus on math in hydroponics is evident in her YouTube videos, where she transforms intricate math ideas into fun, engaging activities.
While outdoor gardens have their place, Glenna believes that hydroponics offers a unique advantage in the classroom setting. The reasons range from space constraints to year-round cultivation possibilities. For educators and institutions keen on introducing this innovative method, Glenna’s Hydro4Food and Hydroponics in the Classroom are excellent starting points.
In her personal journey, Glenna, along with her husband Michael Franklin, has embraced a sustainable lifestyle at Terra Hill Farm. Their venture into near off-grid living is a testament to their commitment to sustainability and self-sufficiency, values they hope to instill in others through their educational endeavors.
