I am doing my senior project for GROW Harrisburg because I want to give back to the community, even it it’s a small contribution — a little can go a long way. I’m specifically interested in aquaponics. It’s a cool way to grow veggies and to experiment with different plants to effectively grow food for people. It’s also cool because it involves a combination of fish and plants, each providing nutrients to each other, which is different compared to an ordinary soil-based garden.
