Join us for our monthly EcoReps workshop featuring locals making a difference in sustainability and a free vegetarian lunch!

On November 17th, we will gather to learn more about what aquaponics is and the different scales that it can be implemented at. Aquaponics is a form of agriculture that uses fish waste to grow clean, sustainable produce. This workshop will be led by senior undergrad student, Chelsea Erbacher. Chelsea got into aquaponics by first being obsessed with the fishkeeping hobby. This love for fish led to applying for an internship in high school at a local aquaponics greenhouse. Since then, she has worked two summers at the aquaponics greenhouse - Western KY Aquaponics.

She has been establishing an aquaponics system on campus and will offer suggestions for how members of the campus community can get involved. All are welcome.

The Sustainability Council’s EcoReps program is designed to move students, faculty & staff beyond talk to action for a more sustainable UofL! We provide basic training & resources, service opportunities, and leadership positions as a point-person & peer-to-peer advocate for sustainability. More info on EcoReps website.
