Today's HERO OF THE WEEK goes to the wonderful Pat Wilborn and the PortFish Ltd Team for all the incredible work they've done helping us set up our aquaponics system!
If you're unfamiliar with PortFish, they are a local nonprofit formed to address, and raise awareness about, issues and concerns regarding our current and future food supply.
They establish independent, local, sustainable, and year-round food systems... and they were crucial in ours!
They figure out efficient ways to utilize water and waste, from green houses, to aquaponics systems (like ours), hydroponics, or "cold frames".
PortFish was crucial in not only the set up, but educating us on how to maintain and improve it.
We have big plans for our aquaponics system and are excited to see it really starting to flourish and grow!
We want to thank Pat and the entire PortFish team for all they do for the greater Milwaukee area as well as the time and effort they've specifically put in our neighborhood.
We are honored to take the experience and knowledge he's passed on to us and expand our food insecurity programming.
Pat and the entire PortFish team are our....
HERO(es) OF THE WEEK!!!
