Second Greenhouse Almost Completed

Hi Everyone

Our second greenhouse for our large aquaponics system is almost complete. We have been working hard and discovered many unexpected twists and turns during the construction process. We are still in need of purchasing and equipment for the project including growing beds,seeds and tanks for the fish house. We also still need to install the electrical system but everything looks good and we should be growing food by December. As the weather turns colder our youth interns are learning alot and really appreciate the concept of working inside of a warm greenhouse.

We look forward to hosting more youth from our local high school and introducing everyone to our fish, chickens and worms. It has been alot of hard work but it will all be worth it when our youth farm interns become the youth farm experts and we begin to share our vision with others in the community. We look forward to sharing the photos of our first winter greens with everyone in December / January.
