Project Description

Rivendell Farms of the Carolinas (RFC) is teaming up with 100 Gardens to develop a series of courses on aquaponics instruction. This will range from the hobbyist wanting a backyard system for sustainable home food production to using aquaponics as a tool for STEM education in local school systems.

Aquaponics is an interdisciplinary field that incorporates science, technology, engineering and math as well as general life skills such as construction, plumbing, electricity and small scale animal husbandry and agriculture into a hands-on, multidimensional, learning experience for students of all ages. 100 Gardens currently operates in over a dozen schools in the Charlotte area as well as overseeing 2 aquaponics installations in Haiti.
