HI Everybody Zoe here. Just wanted to let you know that we are going on a best practice tour in mid-March to look at other urban agriculture programs and get some ideas for our Mobile Market and Rise Up Cafe.
We are going to Logan Square, in Chicago and Growing Power, in Milwaukee. We took a visit to Growing Power a few years ago and they are amazing! They grow Talapia fish and plants in harmony. The fish waste feeds the plants and the plants filter fresh water for the fish. They also have gotten into the business of farming worm castings. Its some of the best compost around and sells and a premium price. Here are some pics from our last trip.
We'll see you guys when we get back . . with pictures.
