Whoa! Why didn’t I discover iNaturalist sooner? It’s an app that helps you identify the plants and animals around you by connecting with a community of over a million scientists and naturalists.

Hydroponics allows you to save up to 90% of water used in traditional agriculture systems, requires much less space, and you don’t have to worry about watering the plants.
