Introducing Rachel and Chris of Floating Gardens
Floating Gardens is a year-round hydroponic greenhouse growing gourmet vegetables year-round for local markets. As their name suggests, Floating Gardens uses the hydroponic (soilless) method of growing their produce which means their greenhouses are full of floating produce. This hectare-sized greenhouse is owned and operated by siblings Rachel and Chris Buhler on their family's farm outside of Saskatoon in Osler, SK.
Many of their soil-less hydroponic crops are grown in ground coconut shells, and others float on water. This method allows Floating Gardens to provide year-round veggie service in a four-season province of Saskatachwan. Can you imagine? A garden full of greens in January and June?! Chris and Rachel like hydroponics because they can precisely feed their plants that can encourage more flavour—their intention is you taste that difference, year-round. They carry a variety of products assorted greens and herbs, tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, and edible flowers.
