female student in red tshirt holds plantStudents at Terry Sanford High School in Mr. Brian Thompson’s environmental science classes were introduced to Aquaponics this year for research and classroom lessons. Aquaponics combines fish culture with raising crops by placing the two together in a single ecosystem. Through a trial-and-error design process, Mr. Thompson’s students designed a replicable system with a small footprint that would be a simple addition to any classroom. The goldfish live in a tub on the bottom level, water is pumped up to the top level where seeds are germinating and then cascades down to the lower levels where stronger plants flourish under active lighting.

Aquaponics is one expression of the sustainability efforts happening at Terry Sanford high school. The agricultural method uses over 90% less water than conventional growing in soil, utilizes a much smaller footprint while expanding vertically, requires no pesticides and does not use artificial fertilizers. Different fish species can be selected for harvest in larger operations. The final system designed at Terry Sanford is small, inexpensive and reusable.

the sun shining with the words Kids eat FREE this Summer written in blueFayetteville, NC – For many kids, summertime means two things: fun and friends. But when school’s out, that also means that families cannot count on their kids eating meals at school, and already tight family food budgets have to be stretched even further.

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a federally-funded program designed to fill the need and ensure that children from low-income homes continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. This summer, USDA plans to serve more than 200 million free meals to children 18 years and under at approved Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) sites.
