Aquaponics system installed at East Ridge Elementary
Two Hamilton County Schools are now working together to create sustainable food systems.
Students from the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy installed an aquaponics system at East Ridge Elementary.
The students will use the system to raise fish and plants together in a balanced ecosystem.
The system's creator says the fish will fertilize the plants, then the plants will filter the waste out of the water.
The aquaponics systems are made right here in Chattanooga.
There is a system like the one at East Ridge Elementary already installed at UTC.
