Community Education Event – Aquaponics

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

7:00pm

Brazos Center – Room 102, 3232 Briarcrest, Bryan

Aquaponics is the prime method that Aquatic Greens Farm in Bryan, Texas uses as an agricultural practice that is both sustainable and protective of the environment. Learn through a demonstration how this method is used to grow vegetables. Learn how Aquatic Greens Farm operates to serve the Bryan/College Station area. The public is invited at no charge.

Presented by: Sharon Wells is a 1987 graduate of Texas A&M University.  After spending many years working with children, she started looking into aquaponics as a more effective and healthier way to feed her family.  Their family farm was started on Tabor Road in Bryan in 2013.  In 2014, she partnered with Bridget’s Baskets to help provide a flexible CSA/delivery service for the residents of Bryan/College Station and in 2016 she added two Aggie partners (Earth Galley Farms).   The sustainability approach used by Aquatic Greens Farm brings an important environmental perspective to the Brazos Valley and Sharon continues to seek out new ways to share what she has learned with others.
