Whether you are a hobby grower, a terrace gardener, or an urban farmer, there is a training program for you.
Whether you want to set-up an indoor or outdoor Hydroponic farm, we can help you with both.
What our customers say about us
While foraying into Hydroponics I had experimented with expensive imported products. Although great, they were prohibitively expensive to implement on a commercial scale in our country. I then tried CityGreen's products and have been using them since 2018. I am thoroughly satisfied with the product’s quality and ability to make your plants transform into super healthy crops.
Capt. Prasenjit (Retd.), High Altitude Farm, Nubra (Ladakh)
Had a fantastic time in the resident course with City Greens. Got a great insight from great people in the field of hydroponics and urban farming. Definitely a must do course for people looking to get educated & initiated about hydroponics and how to take it up commercially.
Ronak, Managing Director - Big Box Containers Pvt. Ltd.
The training was highly inspirational, energizing, bringing lots of ideas, with both substantial and in-depth knowledge together with case studies, learning from experience and being fully practice oriented. Well-balanced composition of participants, contributing to interesting discussions and exchanges.
Manish, Software Engineer
The residential training course imparted us with clear knowledge regarding different aspects of Hydroponics business including how to determine commercial feasibility. I am immensely grateful to the support which we have received from the staff of CityGreens during and even post the training period.

Plants need a mix of different macro and micro nutrients. The nutrients designed for soil based farms focus primarily on macro nutrients that the soil is deficient in. When growing in water, you are starting from zero nutrients. Hence, it is important to use the right kind of balanced nutrient formulae to achieve optimal growth.

Setting up a farm is a large investment. Unlike a standard marketable product (like a car, television), it is difficult to give a fixed cost for a farm set-up. Think of it like building a house. The cost will vary upon a lot of components like quality of site, number of rooms, engineering design, plumbing design, no of floors, quality of materials, cost of professionals, labour cost, etc.
As such, we have compiled some standard farm sizes with indicative budget estimates to help you get started. You can access the CityGreens Farm Set-up Budget Estimates to get a ballpark idea of investments that may get into the set-up phase of a Commercial Urban Farm.
The needs of a Hobby grower or a Terrace gardener differs from that of a Commercial grower.
While the primary objective of a Hobby grower or terrace gardener is to be able to learn to grow and provide their family with healthy food, the key objective for a Commercial grower is to understand the minute intricacies, get a fair estimation of risks involved, and figure out ways to maximize profit.
LECA or Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate is one of the most widely used Hydroponic growing media. You may come across terms like leca, clay balls, clay pebbles, hydrotons, fly-ash balls, etc. to represent similar set of products.
CityGreens Hydrotons Guide will demystify the world of leca for you.
