Farm Project: Thimble Farm

This blog post is by Lee Felix, a 2nd year crew member of the Farm Project This week we went to Thimble Farm. We cleared the fence line. We also helped move things in the greenhouse and clean them. I found it interesting that the fish [in the aquaponics system in the greenhouse] benefit the plants by giving nutrients through its waste, and the plants help the fish by cleaning the water. It is a life cycle! I also think it is more efficient to have an aquaponics greenhouse because it takes less time and less space to grow plants, and we can use it year round.
