How does your garden grow? Brandon Menchaca takes ‘growing green’ to a higher level


Water Food Solutions has a new way to look at gardening, and it’s “germinating” with people. Brandon Menchaca is in the GDOC studio to talk about the exciting new gardening technology called Hydroponics. No soil. No need for vast amounts of space. No pesticides.

“Water Food Solutions is responsible for designing, building, and consulting for Hydroponic systems,” said Menchaca. “With this technology, a wall can become a source of food with a recirculating system that essentially waters itself. In fact, it used 90 percent less water than traditional gardening.”

if you are new to the Hydroponic conversation, here are some advantages of this new kind of gardening:

  • Extremely efficient. It requires less energy to produce food.
  • Reduces carbon footprint
  • Water efficient
  • Efficient use of space. Produce grows vertically.
  • High Yield
  • No contamination
  • Better control over growing conditions
  • Re-usable

“If I can share this idea with everyone, then I believe they, too, will see the inefficiencies in what exists today and will explore the possibilities that also exist,” said Menchaca. “If I can turn a couple of heads, I think we can make a significant change.”

This is a great organic way to allow the conversation to continue. For more information on how to bring a little more “green” to your home or business, please visit
