Residents living in Sunter Muara, Sunter Agung, Tanjung Priok, North Jakarta will develop urban hydroponic farming in greenhouses in the Taman Hatinya PKK, RW 05.
The seeds will later be planted in environmental parks or can be used as an economic commodity for residents
This greenhouse is a plant nursery provided by PT Indonesia Power's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program.
Sunter Agung Urban Village Head Danang Wijanarka said it was chosen as a container for hydroponic gardening as it was deemed sterile from plant pests and diseases. Thus it could produce good quality plant seeds.
"The seeds will later be planted in environmental parks or can be used as an economic commodity for residents," he expressed, Friday (10/16).
Previously, he expressed, the residents had tried to develop organic plants conventionally. Unfortunately it was unoptimal, as the result was not well developed.
Thus far the construction of the greenhouse had entered the completion stage. The next stage would prepare the planting media shelf and prepare the plant seeds.
"It will be complete in about a month from now. As for plant preparation is in about three weeks," he stated.
