Eagle Scout Project

Former student, James Bledsoe, works on his Eagle Scout project at our Golden View Farm.

 Here's a quick synopsis of his project:

" Traditional agriculture involves raising plants in a soil growing medium, which is effective, but ultimately, gallons and gallons of water are thrown away, only to erode the soil, depriving it of nutrients.  My project involves a fix to the downfall of soil in farming--I started a hydroponic garden at Golden View, which is a type of gardening that uses oxygenated, nutrient supplemented water as a growing medium.  By using storage tubs, plants, small pellets, and solar-powered water pumps, I created six separate fully sustainable hydroponic gardens, one for each grade!"
