Kat and Anni have arrived safe and sound back in the US, while Wade finishes up one last week in Lima. On the home front, Anni and Kat are preparing the receipts we collected of every purchase we made while in Lima to present to Philanthropiece - who kindly provided the funding for our trip.
The aquaponic system in Kat's back yard is in full production! The broccoli has already been harvested (and was delicious, according to Sam), and there are tomatoes and peppers on the vine, ripening in the hot Colorado sun. The marigolds act as a natural pest repellent, and make it a little easier on the eyes...
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.
