Hi Everyone

We have been busy, busy, busy with our greenhouse and aquaponic growing project. The first bed is up and we are happy to see some baby bok choy and deer tongue lettuce emerging. We are still in the process of adding the fish tank to the large bed but that has not stopped the greens from growing. We are now preparing to add the fish tank with fish included to the system. We have completed the work on the heater, the fan for cooling (not needed yet) and all the electrical outlets. We are still in the process of mastering the greenhouse  computer system control and all of our youth interns are super excited. We have one more huge step to complete and that is the fish. We are also considering adding another growing bed to double our food production and a bucket system to grow tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. I like to thank everyone for your continued support on our fish project and by the way the chickens are doing fine 13 eggs today!
