Yesterday we began building the system! We purchased all the parts and brought them over to the school, and explained them to the 7th grade science class as well as the gardeners who will be helping maintain the system. After getting over their initial skepticism, and agreeing to move the system out of their prized lawn, they quickly began sharing ideas and excitement. Everyone we have met is intrigued by the idea, and eager to see it in action. Today we will connect the tubes and get the water running!
All About Us
- Aquaponics in Lima
- Kat, Anni, and Tim are graduate students getting their MSBA in Global Social and Sustainable Enterprise at Colorado State University. They will be constructing aquaponic systems in Lima, Peru to test the feasibility of such systems to feed malnourished communities in arid cities. They plan to show that aquaponics can provide fresh, organic vegetables to an area where they are otherwise untenable, while at the same time introducing a sustainable supply of fish.
