Wellington Aquaponics's insight:

Check out the use of led grow lights this is another idea we could use our solar panels to power.  It is also an aquaponics idea that we could package for urban impoverished areas.

Worms are an important part of the ecosystem of the garden. Worms turn the soil for us and are an essential part. By teaching our students about the good bugs in a garden they can further their love and appreciation for the smaller creatures that share this blue planet with us.
