Come and join us.
The Junior Farmers Marco and Lenny gave a very informative portion of the tour inside the greenhouse where they described the bicycle -powered rainwater catchment system, the re-purposed food grade barrels, and the trench for the closed-loop aquaponic system. They were awesome. People were really excited about the rainbarrel. win-win-win Hire youth to repurpose food grade barrels for distribution around the sewershed. We've been giving a lot of nice tours lately.
The conversations were amazing. It felt like everybody keeps doing their part and together we are making huge leaps and bounds exploring concepts such as combined stormwater systems . The bottom line is....how do we transform our problems into resources? How do we use our ingenuity to re-purpose, up-cycle the waste stream??!!
