Good morning friends of Care and Share!
Today, we have beautiful lettuce from Daily Harvest Aquaponics. This awesome organization is yet another partner in the fight against hunger.
Aquaponics are explained in this great article by the Hungry Chicken Homestead. Here’s a basic overview:
An aquaponic system circulates water from fish to plants and back again. The fish make the water nutritious for the plants and the plants make the water clean for the fish. And it uses 10% of the water needed for land farming!
Like this! (The green things at the bottom aren’t cucumbers. They’re bacteria added to change the nitrites to nitrates.)
Tours of Daily Harvest Aquaponics are by appointment only on Fridays at 10 am. For more information, please visit: http://dhaqua.com/tour-daily-harvest-aquaponics-in-colorado-springs/
