Sporah meets Mwamy: 

Who is Mwamy..?
Mwamy Mlangwa ni Mama, Mke na mkulima wa mboga jijini Dar es salaam,  Mwamy analima kilimo cha kisasa, kinachojulikana kama Kilimo bila udongo (Hydroponics).
Mwamy anapenda kusafiri, anapenda kusoma vitabu, anapenda sana kukaa na familia yake, kupika na kusaidia watu.

Mboga anazolima Mwamy zinakua kwa muda wa siku 35 mpaka 45.. na hizo siku zinatofautiana kutokana na hali ya hewa.
Kipindi cha joto zinakua taratibu ila kipindi cha baridi zinakua haraka.

Mboga hizi zinaliwa zikiwa mbichi, ni kama salad. Kama tunavyokula kabichi, unakata unaosha, unakata na nyanya, pilipili hoho na tango na salad source.
Mboga hit sio kama mboga nyingine kama matembele na mchicha.

Mboga hizi zinaliwa na kila mtu, sasanasana watu wanaopenda kujali afya zao ambao hawapendi kunenepa na kujali ngozi zao. Hii ni kwasababu kilakitu kuhusu hii mboga kinaliwa kikiwa FRESH. Yani nyanya zikiwa fresh, pilipili hoho fresh, vitu vote hivi vinasaidia sana ngozi zetu. Pia kama mtu ana viupele au matatizo ya ngozi, hizi mboga zinasaidia sana.

KILIMO cha mboga mboga tofauti kinakua kwa kasi sana  nchini Tanzania.
Sekta ya kilimo imekuwa na mchango mkubwa katika uchumi wa Tanzania ambapo mwaka uliopita ilichangia asilimia 29.1 ya pato la jumla la taifa.
Hydroponics: Kilimo bila udongo.
Hydroponics involves growing vegetables in water, rather than in the earth. Chemicals and nutrients are then carefully added to the water supply. 

Hydroponics is the growing of plants in a liquid nutrient solution with or without the use of artificial media.  Commonly used media include expanded clay pellets, peat coir, perlite, vermiculite, brick shards, polystyrene packing peanuts and  wood fiber.  Hydroponics is a viable method of producing vegetables,  foliage plants and other crops.  The demand for locally grown produce has risen dramatically.  Growing these crops hydroponically is a very efficient means of meeting that demand.

When it comes to setting up a hydroponic system there are many key factors that should play into your decision. To help you decide whether or not you should have a hydroponic system, we have listed some advantages and disadvantages. Take a look and see if it’s for you.
  • You can grow anywhere.
  • Uses 20 times less water than soil based gardening.
  • Your environment is sterile, which means no pesticides.
  • You’ll use 20% less space for growing.
  • The system water can be reused, allowing you to conserve water.
  • You can have complete control over nutrient balance by using Dyna-Gro Nutrition Solutions.
  • No soil setup and testing hassles.
  • Harvesting is easier.
  • No mulching, tilling, changing of soil and weeding
  • You can grow year round if indoors.
  • Putting together a hydroponic system isn’t cheap.
  • Constant monitoring is required.
  • Hydroponic systems are vulnerable to power outages.  In the event of a power outage that outlasts your generators you will be manually watering your garden.
  • Micro-organisms that are water-based can creep in rather easily.
  • Growing a hydroponic garden demands technical expertise.
  • Production is limited compared to field conditions
  • If a disease appears, all plants in the system will be affected.
  • Without soil to serve as a buffer if the system fails plant death will occur rapidly.
