Join us in UofL's student-run, organic Garden for a workshop lead by EcoReps Intern, Chelsea Erbacher, on aquaponics, a food production system that couples aquaculture with hydroponics whereby the nutrient-rich aquaculture water is fed to hydroponically grown plants, where nitrifying bacteria convert ammonia into nitrates.

It's a means of using fish waste to grow fresh vegetables in tanks.

The Garden Commons has experimented with aquaponics in our greenhouse in the past, and Chelsea is helping construct a new aquaponics system at UofL's Community Composting Project, which we will walk over to, if time allows.

This is a UofL Sustainability Week event!
