Urban Harvest class: "Aquaponics & Farm Tour"

Urban Harvest

Tour Laughing Frog Farm and see vegetables, fruits, a greenhouse, chickens, horses and the latest installation of aquaponics. There is tilapia growing in an in-ground tank in the greenhouse. Most farm-raised fish are fed unnatural, unhealthy diets of corn and soy and given antibiotics to ward off the illness that follows. However, these fish are fed worms, algae, duckweed and dehydrated greens, which are all grown organically on the farm. During the cool months the pond helps heat the greenhouse that is full of tomato seedlings and citrus.
