The Green Acres’ aquaponics project is a partnership between the City of Kansas City, MO, the KCMO School District and other organizations. This project utilizes campus greenhouses at East High School to launch an aquaponics program an initiative that will provide fresh food to the community, education, and hands-on learning for students. Through common goals, partnerships and innovative thinking, all involved in this effort are chipping away at the problems of urban food deserts, compromised educational systems, crime and a lack of jobs. This project will feed people nourishing foods, while nurturing their souls through a new connection to food, agriculture and aquaponics.
