    • Pensylvania 2016 Farm Show School to Table ExhibitSteelton Highspire School To Table Aquaponics Program combines students with an educational program based on the production and sale of produce to local restaurants and markets.  With an aquaponic greenhouse for an classroom, this program nurtures entrepreneurship while supporting skills in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.).  Through Wheelhouse with support from Zoetic Global, students are showing off their skills and knowledge at the 100th Pennsylvania Farm Show. 
    • Please see some of the pictures taken at the Farm Show Auaponics Exhibit in the slide show above.

    • Update on greenhouse I thought you would all appreciate an update on the progress of the students. As of today, the students have learned all the basic functions inside the greenhouse. They can successfully run the system on their own (with a little guidance) and manage problems such as pests and some nutrient deficiencies. They have learned how to identify issues that could arise in the system, including ammonia spikes and anoxic buildup. Fish surveys have been demonstrated, and the students will start conducting them next week. They have all learned how to propagate and prune tomatoes, mint, and basil, which people normally don't learn until at least college! By the end of the week they will also learn proper harvesting techniques and more plant propagation. I'm super impressed by all we've been able to cover! We may be able to create a training certificate program that lasts as little as six months, fully qualifying those graduates from the program to work as an aquaponic greenhouse manager. I will advise Aggreco about this program idea. As a final thought, Susannah has demonstrated excellent skills, and she most definitely deserves a round of applause from all. If anyone had any questions or requests, please let me know! Thanks! - Johnny
