Here are some decent roots on our young aquaponic kale at J.O. Wilson Elementary School, but roots ain’t gonna pay no bills! (unless they are root vegetables.)
Unfortunately we got this system, “The Cardinal”, started late in the year. We only added about 10 goldfish to start and we weren’t able to pump out any significant veggie volume. (But we did conduct numerous science lessons with students.)
We shut The Cardinal down for the Winter to protect it from the weather. (The goldfish are staying warm with Cultivate the City in a mini aquaponic system growing strawberries in a rooftop greenhouse.)
2017 will be about maximizing the production of high-quality crops, quantifying our production, and standardizing operating procedures.
