Grantee: West Career and Technical Academy – Las Vegas, NV
Project Title: Aquaponic System to Revamp School Lunches
Grant Type: ecoSolution
The students at West Career and Technical Academy have decided to revamp their school lunches with vegetables and herbs grown in their very-own aquaponics system! Using the school pond, they have built shelves for plants onto it, where the students will be responsible for taking care of the fish as well as the plants.
Continuous impact/Community engagement:
This system will teach students not only the responsibility required for taking care of living creatures but also how to grow and use their own food. They plan on keeping the program alive with money from selling the extra plants.
