GreenLeaf Aquaponics & a Good Time

Aquaponics was a huge hit for Urban Green Lab. Betsy Mason and Austin Litrell of GreenLeaf Aquaponics gave us a crash course on all things aqua (in a nutshell: aquaculture + hydroponics= aquaponics), as well as the process they went through in experimenting with different farming methods before finalizing on their current design. We got a tour of their facility and up close and personal with the alluring variety of greens they are successfully growing. Additionally, we were able to enjoy a wonderful salad made of lettuces we harvested and  tasty accoutrements brought by participants. Aquaponics, as Part II of our Urban Agriculture Series, was an inspiring and delicious success!
