Educational Aquaponics Program for Families!

I’ve been leading virtual aquaponics sessions with Chicago Youth Centers this fall as a part of their family engagement programs. All the families received an aquaponics kit with pea seeds, and we’ve been meeting and assembling our kits via zoom. We’ll be adding betta fish to the system, but already the pea sprouts have been taking off and growing hydroponically! I’m super excited about continuing to develop aquaponic education programs. This is an easy and accessible way to grow sprouts year-round indoors!

Looks so cool!
