AgWorks at CCA tour
March 25, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Commonwealth Charter Academy (CCA), a Pennsylvania public cyber charter school, today unveiled AgWorks at CCA, the largest public educational aquaponics facility in the country. Aquaponics refers to systems that combine conventional aquaculture (raising and harvesting fish) with hydroponics (growing plants without soil).
The AgWorks at CCA facility is a sustainable, zero-waste ecosystem. It uses fish to fertilize plants, resulting in higher yields of produce than traditional agriculture. Bio-controls have replaced pesticides, ensuring that the GMO-free produce is free of contaminants. FREE TOUR
