Aquaculture

Volunteer Needs, The Farm, Washington County
Currently, we have needs in the areas of managing our raised bed gardens and fruit tree orchard, including help with mowing the orchard. We are currently looking for plumbers who could assist with plumbing our aquaponics systems which will be installed in shipping containers on our property. Along with that, as our aquaponics and hydroponic systems get up and running this fall, we will have additional volunteer opportunities related to that. This could provide a valuable opportunity for individuals looking to get into aquaponics or hydroponic production themselves.
