Past News Releases


In 2002 hydroponics systems specialists, industry experts and hydroponic gardening enthusiasts joined forces to create the humanitarian group ‘Hydro For Hunger’. Two of its supporters, Mike Biggs from CX Hydroponics, and Eric Bergeron from Canna, have just embarked on a gruelling 90 day bicycle ride across Australia to raise awareness in the cause.

Throughout the 3000 mile expedition, the pair will have no support crew: they will carry all of their supplies, including food and water, with them as they ride.

“Hydro For Hunger brings simplified hydroponics to third world communities in need of alternative ways to grow for themselves and for a living” explained Mr Biggs. “We hope that our ride will increase awareness in the organization and raise funds to supports its projects.”

The journey, leaving Cairns in Far North Queensland will travel through the Australian Outback to Darwin and then to the Western Australian Kimberley coastal town of Broome.

Mr Biggs is updating CX Hydroponics Facebook page and blog with the expedition updates.
