One of the wonderful things about our team is the variety of strengths we bring to the table. Anni's, for example, is as a magnetic sponge for contacts. On a jog with a running group here in Lima, she met the Director of Facilities and Development of the American School of Lima (Colegio Roosevelt). Yesterday, we visited the campus, presented our idea, and collectively agreed on a site for our pilot system! Middle school science teachers will be incorporating the system into their curriculums next year, and help us gather data to record the progress! Now we will get to work designing the system based on materials available here in Lima.
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.
