Urban Farming: Our new pond!

July 6, 2016

farm at fairplex pond Our Farm team is constantly experimenting with various urban farming methods, one of the latest being aquaponics. We started work on our above-ground fish pond a couple months ago and it is now fully functioning!

The pond connects to our Agustin lettuce culture crop, which is being grown in DIY plant tubes. Eventually our fish pond will ensure food circulation and aeration of water from the pond skimmer back into the pond.

Our horticulturist says we only need a portion of the water flow to support the lettuce plants.

Our pond also serves as a home to turtles, fish and (most likely) ducks!

We’re very excited to introduce our latest farming structure to you during Fair time. Stay tuned for updates!
