Member Meeting & Potlucks:
Reminder: Member Meeting & Potluck's Monthly. In June we took a tour of Lake Orchard Farm Aquaponics, and this July we are planning a volunteer trip to Grassway Organics pizza night!
On Wednesday, June 29 Goodside volunteers attended the Lake Orchard Farm Aquaponics Open House as a volunteer get-together. We were able to tour the areas where tilapia are raised and vegetables are grown, learning about the sustainable method of producing food aquaponically.
Aquaponics is a sustainable food production system that combines traditional aquaculture (raising fish in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. Vegetables are grown naturally, without pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers. Fish are raised in clean water, and are never exposed to antibiotics, growth hormones, or pollutants. Vegetables are grown without soil using clearflow aquaponics systems. (Courtesy http://www.lakeorchardaquaponics.com/)
We sampled delicious tilapia and salads with ingredients from the farm, prepared by students from Lakeshore Culinary Institute.
