Grow The Greenhouse - The Schoen Family Challenge 

Imagine a greenhouse that produces vegetables and fish in one system! A lead donation of $50,000 by the Schoen family is bringing this dream to our community. The Schoen family challenge asks people in the community to donate toward this project, too. For every $1 raised, the Schoens will do an additional match up to $75,000. Let’s support this project – “Grow the Greenhouse!”

CISS is making a dream come true through a generous donation from the Schoen family in honor of their wife/mother Maddie Schoen. This donation will bring a HydroCycle Aquaponics Systems to our greenhouse, allowing us to take advantage of the natural biological functions of both fish and plants. As the fish fertilize the system’s plants, the plants purify the water, leading to low-maintenance systems that produce natural, pesticide-free veggies and protein!
