Aquaponics at Rufus King High School



James Godsil and the good people at Sweet Water Organics have been absolutely integral to my high school students’ success in aquaponics.   Over the past 3 years, we have designed, built, and run aquaponics systems each year, harvesting, deconstructing, and redesigning a new system each year.   We have had a lot of success running these systems, have recieved some recognition, and most importantly, the students have learned an incredible amount, from building and engineering skills to farming and culinary skills.   Without Sweet Water’s support and assistance, there is no way we would have been able to accomplish even a small percentage of this.   We use our systems in our classroom daily and are extraordinarily thankful to Sweet Water.
