Sustainable growing introduced to Club!

On Tuesday, December 11th the experts from 2445 organics came to the club to deliver our new 3 Tier Indoor Super Grow System. While here they did a hands on interactive demonstration with our members to teach the importance of organics and sustainability. While here they also learned how to plant, maintain and harvest the crops utilizing their grow system. Thanks to the 2018 Alcoa Foundation STEM Grant we were able to purchase the unit and hardware to maintain the system and we’ll now be able to harvest our crops every 18-20 days to be utilized in smoothies, salads and basil pesto style pizza’s. The best part is our members are growing their STEM based education on a weekly basis, all while learning how to be sustainable and healthy eating habits based on their own farm to table produced efforts!
