A green person will show efficiency in all its actions either if we talk about recycling or when dealing with the limited resources.

During the winter we tend to eat more fats

A very important resource during the winter season is the food. We tend to eat more fat during winter time and this situation has a negative impact on our body because it lowers the energy level.

We need healthy food like fruits and vegetables all year long, but especially during winter because our body depends on the minerals and antioxidant agents contained by them.

Nowadays, resources like the land, have become rarer and more expensive due to the fact that the world population is increasing every year.

Limited resources for a growing population

As population grows, all resources become more important for all of us, so we need to use them more wisely.

In order to produce our own healthy food like fruits and vegetables even during winter time, we need to learn a few things about the hydroponic technology.

This technique does not require large surfaces of agricultural field because it was created using the space and time in a more efficient way.

If you want to produce green plants during winter, you need to create an environment which is well isolated from the outside weather conditions.

A well insulated greenhouse

First, you need to build a resistant and well insulated greenhouse.

The greenhouse must be able to protect your plants from winter conditions and prevent frost inside.

You will use water tanks, air pumps, hydroponic nutrients, pest and temperature control systems in the greenhouse, so it must be built to protect them during cold days.

Inside the greenhouse you need to maintain the temperatures required by the plants and the nutrients to work properly.

If you provide warm temperatures inside the greenhouse (not too warm, 68 F is enough), day and night light, and plenty of water, with the help of the hydroponic nutrients you will be able to grow green and healthy plants even during winter time.

You can produce plants throughout the entire year

You can use the greenhouse even during the summer, if you want to produce green plants all over the year.

Actually with the right instructions, the best equipment for plants growing and with the proper nutrients you can have healthy vegetables and fruits all over the year.

Don’t forget the fact that almost all green plants can be kept in a controlled environment during the cold season.
With the proper temperature, proper light and plenty of water with nutrients, these plants are able to produce vegetables and fruits exactly like they do during the regular season.

Technology and innovation can bring us healthy food, even when outside conditions look almost impossible for plant growth.


Producing your own food, is only the first step towards complete freedom, because a person that can produce its own energy and food is a free person that lives in accordance with nature while protecting the environment.
