2016 Project – Aquaponics

Small-scale sustainable agriculture is witnessed in the Aquaponics project. In collaboration with a local environmental educational organization, as an extension of the biology class curriculum a demonstration site was created using this method. The process involved the growth of plants as well as fish, in a closed loop system symbiotic relationship. This combined aquaculture (cultivating fish) and hydroponics (growing plants in liquid nutrient solutions).
