Windermere’s Organic Garden

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!
