The Problem

We are trying to work on sustainable agriculture in our community. We currently have a hydroponic system and would like to use to help produce food for our school district. As a class we are seeing a lack of knowledge about food production methods and we would like to bring the food closer to consumers.

Our Plan

We are planning to use our hydroponics system to help grow food for our school cafeteria. We will collect data such as weather students liked the produce we are going, how many pounds we are producing, and weather we have any diseases within our plants.
