Urban farming - Aquaponics

We have recently launched an aquaponics training facility at the Weaver Center for Community Outreach.  The agribusiness functions around state-of-the-art climate resilient greenhouse farming in areas that import nearly all of their food.

We welcome donations to support adding aquaponics to our LifePoint curriculum.
