Interest in aquaponics is at an all time high. It has captured the imaginations of people who want to grow their own food in a limited space. Fish and plants grow in the same water without the use of fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.
Sanger High School’s Agriculture Department requested our assistance in the design and construction of an aquaponic teaching lab. The goal was to make a full-proof system that would suit the budget of the average homeowner. The twenty identical units are being used for research and have become a prototype for several other high schools.
