General hydroponics (marijuana and non marijuana)

  1. Blades,

    Recently I've taken a general interest in growing (never done it before), and I've read about several projects being launched in some urban areas to grow fresh produce via hydroponics (community gardens only work at ground level because the weight of dirt+water is so massive, making soil gardening techniques unviable on any significant scale above ground level-- unless you're willing to add serious and expensive structural reinforcement to a building).

    Hydroponics, of course, has the added advantages of being space effecient, and weighing significnatly less than soil-based gardens.

    So, can anyone recommend a general primer book on hydroponics, or link to different articles discussing some of these community projects? I'm just fascinated by the idea of fresh produce being grown this way in urban areas.
