Today we ventured out onto the public buses and found our way to the National Agrarian University of La Molina. They are home to the Hydroponic Research Center, run by our host, Alfredo Rodriguez Delfin. They sell what they produce, and students have the opportunity to conduct research on plant types, fertilizers, and soil/substrate options for hydroponic production. Pretty impressive, and a fabulous contact for us!
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. Please subscribe to this blog to find out more about them and their work!
