2019-2020 - Aquaponics!
This November, we will be getting tilapia as fingerlings. We will grow plants in the system, and harvest the fish in June.
New for 2018-2019! Our horticulture classroom is growing...
For the first time ever, the J.M. Rapport School for Career Development is offering a full year Horticulture class! Students learn to grow plants with state of the art hydroponics systems and equipmewnt as well as through conventional soil-based farming. Students start all plants from seed, and harvest and cook what they grow! We raise chickens and compost our food scraps in worm bins. This year we will be adding an aquaponics system to raise tilapia and greens, and we will be raising ducks from eggs!
