“Spring break” visits in the Midwest

 I (Amy) am currently on hiatus from the lovely veggie garden, but my mind is still partially focused on the garden. I had the privilege of visiting a great organization in South Bend Indiana called Green Bridge Growers. Green Bridge uses aquaponics to grow their yummy and beautiful produce. Their aquaponics system involves a colony of koi fish, their natural waste (containing beneficial nutrients), and finally the water filled tanks containing the plants. Instead of transplanting plants into the soil, these roots are submerged into water. Green Bridge is also an awesome organization because they work with people who have special needs.

Thank you, Green Bridge Growers, for the great visit!
