Science for Kids on the Kitchen Counter - Growing Food from Fish Poo
Back to the Roots just launched our new product on Kickstarter, the Aquaponics Garden! It's the first-ever kit that takes the awesome, ancient farming technology of aquaponics and shrinks it down for homes and classrooms! People have pledged $140k towards the project in just over 2 weeks!
Their main focus was taking the simple, ancient science of aquaponics and bringing it into the kitchen so that kids and adults alike can learn about how plants grow, where our food comes, and the natural cycle of plant fertilization. The fish waste fertilizes the plants, and the plants clean the water for the fish. Fish waste is a natural, rich fertilizer that is great for growing food, and a really neat scientific process! They wanted kids to have fun learning where food comes from and about how to sustainably grow it themselves.
