Aquaponics? Aquaponics!

It is with great surprise and pleasure that The Shefa Project would like to announce the donation of small scale aquaculture system! Edward Privorotsky was gracious enough to donate the system (which he built himself!). The tank and pump system are sitting right at the front of The Ghetto Shul.

How does it work you ask? Well, the water in the fish tank is circulated through the clay pebbles. The nutrients and fish ‘waste’ helps to fuel the plants and seeds which will be embedded in the clay. It will take a few weeks to find the right balance, but we are very excited to experiment in this soil-less way of growing!

Gold fish! Aquaponics! In the Shul! Oh my!

Here are some pictures from installations – pictures of progress to come later…
