Population growth which increases every year
results in increasing demand for food. However, the
availability of land for agriculture is decreasing, making
it a challenge for farmers to meet market demand.
Therefore, hydroponic farming is one solution to meet
food needs in urban areas. Hydroponic education for
school students is an educational way to introduce and
teach about hydroponic farming. One hydroponic
method that can be used is the Dutch Bucket System
using husk charcoal and cocopeat as a planting medium.
The aim of the community service activities carried out
at schools is to explain the basic concept of Dutch Bucket
System hydroponics and introduce it to middle school
students to increase their awareness of the potential of
urban agriculture. Increasing students' knowledge about
hydroponic cultivation using the Dutch bucket system
method using husk charcoal and cocopeat through
community service activities. Research Method: This
research will use a descriptive method with a qualitative
approach. Data will be collected through literature
study, observation and interviews. The results and
benefits of learning hydroponics are that it can improve
students' skills in the fields of science and technology. In
an era of increasingly advanced technology, skills in the
fields of science and technology are very important.
Learning hydroponics is a new way to introduce science
and technology concepts to students. Students will learn
science concepts such as photosynthesis and plant
nutrition in hydroponics.
