The agricultural world is expanding, with each year bringing new advancements that growers’ only five years earlier could never have imagined. These days, many growers are producing their crops year-round within greenhouses and other controlled environments, with a number of those same growers producing those crops hydroponically, which can reduce water consumption by up to 90 percent. These, and many other advancements, have made it easier, faster and more cost-effective to produce crops throughout the world.
Simply providing greenhouses, controlled environment agriculture products and hydroponic systems is not the only goal at Growers Supply. The GrowSpan and HydroCycle lines assist growers in meeting their needs, but education and experience is what truly helps growers succeed. That is why Growers Supply has been hosting a series of three-day workshops since 2014, designed to educate consumers on not only the solutions available through Growers Supply, but also on the latest advancements and developments within controlled environmental agriculture. The CEA Hands-On Workshop is an opportunity for likeminded individuals to come together for education on the latest advancements in controlled environment agriculture. Growers of all experience levels are encouraged to attend this event, with discussions ranging from introductory to advanced level topics.
The attendance fee for the three-day workshop is $995, and this is returned in full as a product credit upon completion of the workshop. The product credit can be used towards the purchase of any controlled environment agriculture related product found in the Growers Supply catalog.

This product credit can also be used as a down payment on larger greenhouse or hydroponic system orders as well. Take $995 off your commercial greenhouse, hydroponic system, aquaponic system and more with the CEA product credit. This workshop is ideal for those considering hydroponics or expanding upon their current growing operation, as it allows growers to learn about and work with the systems prior to their purchase. This greatly reduces the amount of trouble shooting often experienced when growers move into new growing techniques, saving time and a great deal of frustration.
