Back in early February, our Green Club began learning about growing sprouts and veggies using simple hydroponics and aquaponics. We learned that there are all kinds of ways we can grow food and plants without even using soil or a garden!
We put together our “salad growing” station from a mini aquaponics set Ms. Shannon had. The pump circulates the water from the aquarium through the plants, keeping them hydrated, healthy and alive!
So far we’ve successfully sprouted kale, peas, lettuce and other greens. We are hoping to add a fish one day soon to help add nutrients to the water and plants, and turn our hydroponics into aquaponics, as well as brighten up our aquarium and our daycare even more!
Here you will see a picture of our system from February when we started our seeds and one with our growing sprouts one month later. Our daycare gets greener every day!
