Executive Director Pamela Fields envisions the future aquaponics set up -- made from donated equipment and built by community volunteers -- as an employment opportunity for the people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who The Arc serves. Get the Full Story HERE.
Aquaponics is an emerging agricultural science involving symbiotic, recirculating systems of fish and plant production. This technique uses approximately 80% less water than traditional farming, and eliminates the external fertilizers that are necessary in hydroponics - all while generating a sustainable source of protein that does not deplete natural fishing stocks.
The final phase of GrowHaus renovations will be the construction of a commercial-scale aquaponics system in the far west bay of our facility. Before constructing the sytem itself, we will need to replace the roof and wall panels, install an energy-efficient HVAC system, and seal the space for sanitation and security. More DETAILS.

Wow! She sent me a link to the site and said that they were encouraging organizations to get involved. That sure started my mind racing. The Full Story from Aquaponic Sorce
