High Caliper Growing is excited to welcome Eliab Lozada to the High Caliper/Smart Pot team. Eli is a graduate from the University of Puerto Rico and former medical professional who developed a passion for hydroponics. He began his career in the indoor gardening industry as a writer for various gardening publications and as a store representative for Garden Indoors of Pennsylvania and Urban Sunshine in Florida. Eli also worked as a product specialist for House & Garden Nutrients and as sales representative for Hydrodynamics International. He has exhibited at many Indoor Garden Expos and educated hundreds of growers across the United States and Latin America. Eli’s gardening roots are more than five generations deep. “Growing our own food was never a hobby, but rather a core value—an obligation, if you will,” Eli recalls. “If you eat it, you should be able to grow it. And a healthy diet is an integral part of good health and longevity. Learning to grow our own food the right way enables us to optimize the quality of what we consume. It also helps us deepen our connection with nature, even in the most urban settings.” Eli looks forward to continuing his service to the gardening community as a member of the High Caliper/Smart Pot team.
