Perfect for the green-fingered among our Tinggly travellers, this Manhattan gift experience is an enthralling introduction to the world of hydroponics, where you’re receive hands-on, professional instruction into the wonders of indoor farming. You’ll learn the benefits of high-tech growing - high yield, pesticide free, year-round - and go from seed to harvest in just one three-hour lesson with an expert horticulturist! Lessons take place at The Farm.One in Tribeca, the largest vertical farm in Manhattan and supplier to some of the Big Apple’s most respected and innovative restaurants. Plus, with a maximum of 6 students per class, you’ll have plenty of one-on-one time with your instructor to pick up good advice.
This New York gift experience also includes a tasting session. Sample up to 30 rare herbs, greens and even some edible flowers that are grown at the farm under controlled conditions and artificial light. It doesn’t matter if you’re an expert gardener with years of knowledge behind you, or your skills are limited to tending your window box - this lesson will be equally fascinating. Find out how to design a simple hydroponics system, manage climate and nutrients for your crops, how to prune your plants to ensure maximum yield, and much more besides. And for one final memento of your visit - you’ll be presented at the end with your own rare plant in a simple hydroponic planter to get you started growing your own.
