Windermere’s organic garden team joined us at Grow to share their work in aquaponics and urban farming. They also helped out with watering and gardening with on site. They are a knowledgeable crew, making a significant impact on the world.
“Windermere Organic Garden was first created by two Leadership students in 2007, starting off with 3 garden beds in our school’s courtyard. Throughout the years, the significance of local gardening has been valued more and more and Windermere Organic Garden is currently home to 13 garden beds, a Verma and Industrialized composting system, an Aquaponics system, and a 16’ X 20’ greenhouse.”

Students worked with Jody Peters from Backyard Bounty and the EYA to set up this unit. They are currently working with goldfish but hope to move on to tilapia soon!
