Improving agriculture, improving lives.
Hydroponic Farms is an Ai Ugandan climate smart urban farming social enterprise that uses Internet of Things technology to design, manufacture and distribute Hydroponic Farms.
Our mission is to empower urban communities to grow their own food and increase agricultural yields
throughout all seasons, through the production and distribution of hydroponic Farms.
In doing so, we aim to enable the sustainable thriving of our own social enterprise and the community we
serve. We aim to provide ecological and innovative means for food production and agribusiness to help
marginalized and vulnerable urban communities.
Climate variance greatly hinders food security in Uganda. This has a gradual effect on different types of people but particularly so for the most vulnerable: women and children. For example, lack of basic food and water is often cause for domestic violence within deprived homes, with women and children comprising the largest targets of such.
With hydroponics the farmer is unaffected by seasons and adverse weather conditions, which historically has given rise to severe food insecurity in Uganda. Hydroponics is capable of delivering quality produce by controlling unpredictable weather conditions to ensure sufficient and consistent food production throughout the year.

Automation & Monitoring
Our systems are equipped with modern technology to enable automated control and remote monitoring through your smartphone.
Our hydroponics is a combination of soilless farming and Internet of Things technology. It enables farming on small spaces with up to 200% yield increase, reduces water use by 90% and saves hundreds of hours that could be used to monitor the farm manually through irrigation automation, remote and real time monitoring of the farm through our mobile phone application.
Plastic Waste and Recycling
Hydroponic farms is equally able to tackle the challenges of post-consumer plastic pollution, waste management and climate change while helping farmers and other underserved communities. We collect recycle and transform more than 12 different types of post-consumer plastic garbage and packaging materials into durable and long lasting polyvinyl chloride (PVCs) that we use in our hydroponic Farms.
The Plastic pipes we use are produced from quality-assured recycled plastic that meets the relevant standards, as shown by tests performed with recycled polyethylene (PE), polyvinyl chloride, (PVC), polypropylene (PP), and acrylate-butadiene-styrene (ABS).
