What Is The Salad Table?

After years of research and determination, I decided to become a farmer to provide fresh produce for everyone. While working two jobs, I built my hydroponic farm and learned how to grow herbs and veggies in bulk for supermarkets. However, the financial return was minimal, with wholesalers and retailers benefiting the most while consumers suffered from delays in getting fresh produce.

Realizing the inefficiencies, I developed a system for everyone to grow their own fresh herbs and veggies at home, leading to the creation of The Salad Table. My passion evolved into a vision: to "Create The Farmer In Everyone." My journey into hydroponics began with the challenges I faced in traditional soil gardening, which had intrigued me since my teenage years.


These problems included:

The Salad Table uses 90% less water than traditional soil gardens and is significantly more productive. You can grow up to 60 plants in less than 2 square meters, with no worries about weeds and year-round freshness. This method saves money, as you can grow herbs for around 40 cents each, much cheaper than supermarket prices, while offering unmatched quality and freshness.

Hydroponics circulates nutrient-rich water through the plants' roots, recycling any unused water back to the plants using a small, efficient pump. This trickle system keeps the roots oxygenated, eliminating the need for soil maintenance like tilling, weeding, or feeding.

Feeding plants in The Salad Table is simple with a recommended nutrient that works for all varieties. Early purchasers receive a free nutrient pack with their system.

Benefits of Growing Your Own Produce Hydroponically on a Salad Table

1. Simple Food Supply The Salad Table Nutrient is the only plant food you need for any variety. It's perfectly balanced, ensuring plants thrive without the need for multiple supplements, making it easy to know exactly how much to use and when.

2. Direct Feeding Hydroponics delivers nutrients directly to plant roots, ensuring they get exactly what they need. The Salad Table's design provides year-round optimal air, water, and nutrient access, unlike soil gardens where nutrient levels are hard to gauge.

3. Use Less Water The Salad Table uses 90% less water than soil gardens. A container holds the water and nutrients, which are recycled through the system, reducing water usage significantly.

4. Comfortable Working Height The Salad Table is at waist height, reducing physical strain. No soil means no tilling or bending over, making gardening more accessible and less painful.

5. Eliminate Weeds No soil means no weeds, reducing the need for toxic chemicals and the labor involved in weeding.

6. Clean Planting and Harvesting Without dirt, planting and harvesting are clean and quick. Transplanting and replanting are efficient and mess-free.

7. Faster Growth Plants grow faster with direct nutrient delivery and ample oxygen, leading to healthier plants that are less prone to pests and disease.

8. Low Maintenance With minimal maintenance, the Salad Table allows for quick harvesting, infrequent watering, and no weeding, saving time and effort.

9. Grow Anywhere Hydroponics enables growing produce in limited spaces like balconies or high-rise apartments. The Salad Table can produce twice as much as soil gardens in the same space.

10. Cheap Herbs and Veggies Growing your own produce is cost-effective, providing high-quality herbs and veggies for a fraction of supermarket prices. Initial setup costs are offset by long-term savings.
