"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these
has been deprived of the best part of his education."
-Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

Aquaponics for Urban Food Production - even with Shrimp
Australia has severe water problems. And aquaponic systems are helping families produce vegetables...here's how.
The following topics are part of a Cornell University course on aquaponics that grows shrimp
Water quality monitoring and measurement
Engineering design of individual unit processes
Fish health management
Economic and risk evaluation
Tours of local aquaculture facilities (Tentative)
Aquaponics provides a great urban food production option. You'll be hearing more about it, especially since it can produce organic foods in a greenhouse with a recirculating water system that uses just a fraction of the water needed for irrigated field food production.
