Work on our Aquaponics Project begins this Spring.
By DeVanie Jackson - Program Director
Spring is here and the growing season is just around the corner. On Tuesday March 29, 2011 we met with aquaponics expert Martin Schreibman to review the plans for how to flow the water from our fish house to greenhouse that will house the hydroponic farm. How exciting a time this was for our youth interns who had the opportunity to meet with Martin and discuss what type of fish we will have at the Bed-Stuy Farm. We are all looking forward to clearing the ground to make room for the gravel and construction process that will happen within the next couple of weeks.
We are hoping that the weather will warm up soon and the signs of snow and winter will become a distant memory as we continue to prepare our farm for the new growing season. We are also in the process of putting in plumbing and electricity on the farm for our fish house and grow lights. We are happy to have your continued support as our aquaponic farm project takes shape and our youth interns learn new skills and have an introduction to green technology.
