King Science Magnet Students Donate Lettuce from Aquaponic Garden

A seventh-grade Service Learning class at King Science & Technology Magnet donated a batch of lettuce from its aquaponic garden to the Food Bank for the Heartland in early May. Aquaponics is a process of growing crops and fish together in a re-circulating system. The class has been successfully growing lettuce for approximately three months while learning about sustainable farming and the process of testing the water and caring for the fish. This was the students’ fourth harvest and they plan to make monthly donations to the Food Bank, in partnership with the UNO Service Learning Academy. After delivering the lettuce, the students toured the facility and volunteered by sorting 2,200 pound of food.
