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!
Connecting the Dots!
On Thursday Anni and Wade met with some Peace Corps Volunteer Coordinators to explore even more possibilities and received an invitation to lead training with community host representatives. They then made their way to visit the system at the Colegio Roosevelt and chatted with the gardeners to catch up on the maintenance. Looks like everything is running smoothly and will be set for the students when they return from winter vacation. Finally, Anni and Wade rushed to see Tito, our technical advisor for an afternoon meeting to discuss his position as a técnico for Organic Oasis. After receiving some valuable info and sealing our partnership, Anni, Kat and Wade had diner with Kat’s parents and Heather (GSSE Student). One long and productive day with a happy ending!
